Date-Filled Citron Shortbread Cookies

Last weekend I worked on a revision of the cookies I made back in December for the business project. This time, I used the candied citron, instead of orange and lemon, to make the recipe even more applicable to the holiday theme. I also punched up the date filling a bit, increasing the amount of lemon juice and adding lemon zest and a pinch of salt. I'm pretty happy with the date filling and the new flavor of the cookies, but one thing I didn't like was that the shortbread didn't stay crispy for very long. I may play around with a different style of cookie for the sandwich.
