      This recipe was very intriguing. I love lemon flavored desserts and the cumin adds an interesting warmth. I feel like this is an acquired taste. When I sampled the batter, I didn't love it because cumin is something I've only associated with savory dishes. I felt like the flavors were clashing. But after I tried a cookie out of the oven, it seemed to make more sense. Perhaps the caramelization of the sugar rounds out the contrast in flavors? While this wouldn't be my first cookie choice if I was craving dessert, I didn't hate it either. Thank you for posting! Reviewed for ZWT - 7.
