hamenoops1 Yea, I don't know what happened this year. Normally, this dough gives me minimal frustration, but for some reason, this go-round I got half a batch of nice-looking little guys and half a batch of...well, sexyugly. Tasty, nonetheless -- but not the kind of cookie you want to pass out. Especially not when you have a food blog. Ugh.

<em>Clearly these are the good ones.</em>

You know what? I'll own it. This dough may not produce the prettiest guys in the pack, but they're damn tasty. The dough is crunchy on the outside, nicely flaky, and flavored with tons of lemon zest. Nothing like those crumbly, nasty things they sell at the bakery. I'm just saying.
