    ONE IMPORTANT CORRECTION: This is a classic recipe from the 1950s, originally found on the back of a C&H Powdered Sugar box. I enjoyed these as kid!
    The original recipe called for 1 Tablespoon lemon juice and 2 teaspoons lemon zest.
    I made them following the amounts listed above and immediately knew something was not right. I located the original box cut-out at my mom's house and found the discrepancy. If you have made these and enjoyed them, don't wait, make them again with the correct amounts. They will be even better! Enjoy!

    How are you supposed to see all of the ingredients when the message about comparing recipes hides some of them?
