Hi Laura–my wife just finished making and baking some holiday cookies to send to family (and to us!) I will try to make these myself. Thank you. Happy holidays and best wishes to you. Here’s to great success with your new book; I’m looking forward to reading it.
Recipe looks good. Thanks & a wonderful Christmas to you & your family🎄
Hi thank you for the recipe. The measurements are you using American measuring cups? or English/European measuring cups. I’m in Australia and our measuring cups are 250ml – I know the American measuring cups are 267ml.
Thanks for asking! Yes, it’s American cups. I hope you enjoyed the cookies! –Laura
Hello Laura and thanks for sharing this recipe! I tried it and loved the cookies even though mine came out a a little different. My cookies flattened out a bit and had a cake-like texture. They were awesome! I think I may have used a little more butter or ricotta. Baking is an exact science. I was able to use local Meyer lemons gifted by a neighbor. Shared cookies with her and family. My family loves them as well!
