Lemon Crinkle cookies

I've just received my cookie press and so, I baked cookies today! Lemon crinkle cookies!
It's really awesome that the cookie press came with so many hard plates for different shapes and I got really excited.
But ah, even tho I followed the recipe stricly, it seems like the dough was too liquidy that the shape wouldn't stay it all flattened out, losing it's shape. :( and also, the recommended 1tablespoon of lemon juice wasn't enough, it tasted just like any another cookie! Boooo.
