    I’m confused on room temperature and cold for butter and cream cheese. Is it cold or room temperature? How long do you suggest to leave on counter before using. Please clarify. Thanks 🙂

      hi, the cream cheese because is softer than the butter could go straight from the refrigerator, the butter could be “room temperature” not too soft, not too cold.
      (trying to help) 😊

    Hello. Thank you for sharing your recipe. I am confused as towards the top you said you don’t bother to have have your butter and cream cheese to room temperature but your recipe says cold cream cheese, and then down at the direction you note that both the butter and cream cheese needs to be room temperature. I don’t know which you’re recommending. Just wanted some clarification. Thank you.

      Hi! Sorry about the confusion, I just fixed it. I use the butter and cream cheese not at room temperature, but they do need to be soft to the touch. Hope this helps.

    Hi Judit. Do these cookies freeze well after baking but before decorating? If so, what do you recommend for defrosting before decorating?

    Thank you for this blog!! Very much appreciate your time and expertise! I’ve got a question about the Grams of Flour: 5 1/2 c = 660g which is 120 g/cup, so shouldn’t the extra 1/4 c be 30 g, not 60? Thank you!

    Hola! Don’t know if I missed it. My question is if we omit the lemon zest will it change the recipe a lot besides the flavor.

  6. Sheree says:

    Do you always use the lemon flavor for your cookie? And do you buy a lemon zest you buy or do you actually grate lemon?

  7. Sheree says:

    Ok…what flavoring do you use in the frosting of each of these recipes?

  8. You mention the use of cornstarch in the beginning of your post, but I don’t see cornstarch listed in the ingredients.
    Also, I’ve never zested a lemon. My husband says you grate the lemon until you see white, is that correct. Thank you so very much for all your help!! You and your family have been in my thoughts every day ♥️

    • Judit says:

      I only use cornstarch when humidity is high, but you can add a teaspoon to the recipe if needed. Yup, your husband is right!
      Thank you so much, me and my family appreciate it so much.

    Hi! I accidentally used granulated sugar instead of confection sugar. How will that affect the recipe?

    • Judit says:

      Hi! Using granulated sugar instead of confectioner’s sugar might affect the texture and sweetness of your recipe slightly, but it’s usually not a significant problem.
