Terrible recipie, hardly makes any, and what you do manage to get from it is extremely crumbly.

Great recipe. It worked well for me. I liked the level of sweetness (not too sweet but sweet enough).
I replaced zest with finely chopped candied lemon peel and it worked a treat.

Lovely biscuits, with a lovely melt-in-your-mouth texture. Although I liked them, when I made my icing it curdled, which was a bit of a disappointment as I spent a lot of money on buying the lemon.

Best things of a life time
