My Skippy Man LOVES lemon. I am certainly going to have to make these. However, I don't have a cookie press so I will have to shape them.
Thank you for posting this!

I just made these, using the juice of a lemon instead of the concentrate and piping them out with the Pampered Chef decorator I got convinced to buy many years ago -- first time I've used it. We had to "taste test" the misshapen ones and they are great! They are headed to a friend's church hall wedding reception.
