Dorie gives a variety of baking times, depending on your desired texture. 8-10 minutes should result in pale, chewy cookies; 12-14 minutes should give you cookies with chewy centers and crisp edges. I baked my batch for 12 minutes and got crisp cookies. Next time I will try reducing the baking time slightly for a slightly softer cookie.
I contributed most of these cookies to a funeral reception where they languished amidst more showy baked goods. Perhaps some colored sprinkles would have made them more attractive. I thought the cookies were very good. Next time I'll add more grated lemon rind or perhaps lemon extract.
