I'm not a huge cookie fan, but these are GREAT!!!  I had limes on hand, but no lemons, so I subbed lime juice.  I am a little stuffy right now and can't taste very well, so I added A LOT more juice than called for.  I also added about a capful of almond extract.  The taste and consistency of these cookies is really great!

can i use smth else instead of butter/margarine? in my place there is no such thing like vegan butter/margarine;/

Hi,
You could try using a really neutral oil, like peanut or canola, but I think you'll see a texture difference.  I live in the north eastern USA.  I'm lucky enought o have many good veg friendly stors here, but I do know that fleischmans makes a vegan oleo, and Willow Run, by Shedd is also vegan.. Good luck!

you see,in my country i can buy margarine or butter only in huge cities and by net-it costs too much, so i try to use oil but not always it is good. i will try make this cookies with oil and we will see : P

Ok so I finally got around to making these. They are so yummy! I don't think I did the lemon rind thing right. I tried to create my own and I think I messed up LOL. Any tips for the future regarding lemon rinding?  :D

Create your own lemon rind?
If you have a lemon, I recommend using a fine grater, or even better a microplane! You can buy them at most cooking stores; I really didn't think it would be useful, but it makes zesting so much easier!

Yummy!
I've made them twice now, and I love them.
I think I ended up using more flour than the recipe calls for, but it came out great anyway.

They were so yummy!! They were eaten as soon as they where out of the oven.
I used applesauce instead of flaxseeds, and whole wheat flour. So good.
