SO HOW'D IT GO?

These certainly were as fantastic as everyone made them out to be.
I went to have another piece, and found half of the batch had been eaten by family and friends. Heck yes!
I did add a bit of soy butter to the glaze, which curdled of course, but all was well.
Anyway, make these if you haven't.

These cookies are amazing.  Even though other reviewers had mentioned it, I really couldn't believe how light these cookies turned out.  My icing turned out watery  which was probably due to the fact that I didn't follow the recipe (oops!).  I didn't add enough sugar, but I liked the tartness of the flavor.

I made at the last minute to bring somewhere, and I didn't have a lot on hand - otherwise I would definitely have made cupcakes from VCTOTW - so I added a lemon frosting (1/4 cup shortening, almost 2 cups powdered sugar, juice of 1 lemon, 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract, 2 TBS zest) on top to make them feel more like cupcakes. 

Mine are not very cute, but they're definitely delicious. 

(Man, I really wish there were a way to make cookies with an oil that's liquid at room temperature and have the texture turn out right.  But then I'd probably just eat more cookies.)

Wow.  Wow.  These cookies are amazing.  I used blood orange instead of lemon and the glaze was a beautiful bright pink.  They were pretty easy too.  These are a definite keeper.

I made these today and they did NOT turn out how I'd expected. I followed the recipe, but man. when I made them before, they were pretty good, nice and sweet and simple, but the flax did something weird. I still thought they were good though, and so did other people.

but this time, they didn't puff up as much, weren't as sweet, and hence, the flaxseed-y-ness is a little overwhelming. their not awful - still pretty edible, and the hint of lemon is nice, but that FLAXSEED! it shows up in little bits and taints the lemon flavour. I'm wondering, because I assume the flax is used as an egg replacer, could I just use something like ener-g?

the batch only made 33 cookies, a lot less than before. weird.

grr. I'm a little disappointed. I love lemon. I really liked these cookies before. I think the next time I make them, and I think I'll make them again soon, I'll use something other than flax. that might make a difference.

I just calculated the nutritional info for this recipe (I'm bored right now). if the batch makes 48 cookies, there are approx 36 calories, 1 g fat, scant fiber, 6 g carbs, and 1 g protein. just thought I'd let ya'll know.
