I really like this cookie - I did modify a bit and make it more about lemon and cranberry and took out the cinnamon and added zest of 1 whole lemon, 1/2 t of almond extract and juice of 1/2 a lemon and I love the zing. Chopped pecans or some pine nuts for crunch would also be a nice touch....This is one I will come back to again - so quick and tasty.
Really tasty, different cookie with some zing! I also left out the cinnamon and added more lemon... orange zest could be nice for change, too.
Wonderful cookies! I doubled the recipe to use up a whole 12oz bag of cranberries and used 1/2 unsalted butter and 1/2 Crisco baking stick (what I had on hand). The only other change I made was to use walnuts instead of pecans because that's what I had on hand. I coarsly chopped half of the cranberries and finely chopped the rest along with the nuts in my food processor. I left some of the cookies un-iced because they are awesome either way and my hubby loved them plain. Using a non-stick cookie sheet, I didn't need to grease the pan. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!
WOW..these are amazing..much better than I could have imagined..and easy! Top of the list for these
These are really great if you like tangy and sweet together. They are simple to make, too. I followed the recipe as written EXCEPT I added more lemon zest and I even added a little lemon juice to the icing. The cookies came out perfectly. Thanks!!
These are great! Really, more like 4.5 stars...I had to guess what temp to cook them at--I used 350 degrees. Also a few more modifications: I used chopped hazelnuts instead of pecans, subbed half of the sugar with Splenda, and dropped by tablespoons onto cookie sheet. These are zippy and good--even with out the icing (I snuck a few before I iced them). THANKS!
These are so delicious! Will bake them for family and friends at Christmas
Just made these, S'kat, and they are WONDERFUL! Moist, tangy, sweet, interesting little cookies! DH, who really only likes molasses cookies or oatmeal cookies, loved these. They are adorable, too. Will definitely include these in my Christmas cookie packages!
