A few weeks ago, we visited Chicago and had amazing lemon cookies with a lemon frosting in the deli area downstairs at Macy's. They had a kind of shortbread thickness to them. My husband went back and bought more as I liked them so much. I have tried a great lemon sugar cookie recipe here. Fabulous but not what I was looking for as it was too thin. I'm looking for something that's a quarter-inch thick and slightly chewy. The frosting was probably a straight-forward lemon-confectionar's sugar combination, but the cookie itself alludes me after looking at a lot of recipes all over and trying a few. Did find an amazing lemon custard cake and am now obsessed with lemons. Any ideas for the cookies? Has anyone else tried them? I don't live near a Macy's cafe or I would go back. Does Macy's sell them in New York so that maybe a New York cook would have tasted them and knew what was in them? Thanks!
