Good, moist cookie. Very quick and easy to prepare. I followed others' suggestions and dusted them woth icing sugar before they cooled. After the first batch, I added some lemon flavouring as I found the flavour very mild. My husband and kids polished these off very quickly!

I loved this recipe. This really hit the spot. They were so easy to make and so moist. I did try some white icing on them and that really set them off. This is a keeper. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

I am torn when it comes to how to rate these cookies. They were good, but not great. My kids (ages 5 and 1) LOVED them. I liked them. I baked them on a foil-lined (and sprayed) cookie sheet at 350 for 10 minutes. I added 1/2 tsp lemon juice to the batter after tasting the first few cookies, and that helped a lot. I think topping these with some glaze would give them 5 stars for me, but I was actually out of powdered sugar when I made these. One great thing about them is that they are super easy.

Very good and very easy. I took previous suggestions and baked them at 350 instead of 375, and baked them on cookie sheets lined with foil that had been sprayed lightly with baking spray. When they were VERY lightly browned on the bottom, removed them - about 10 minutes. Made a glaze with powdered sugar, (about half pound), a tablespoon of melted butter, about a tablespoon of milk, and a little lemon juice and drizzled the cookies. VERY good, and a keeper! thanks.

Good, easy, moist cookie! I added some powdered sugar to the cream cheese and butter when mixing and that helped with the taste. Also, I frosted between two cookies (making a cookie sandwich) to do something different. I frosted the tops of some and dipped or drizzled some in melted chocolate.

Nobody in my family liked these at all. They smelled great but the flavor and texture was something to be desired. I ended up throwing away the dough as I only made two batches and everyone complained about them. I was so looking forward to a different cookie, too. Thanks anyways.

terrible. I made them exactly as the directions called for, and they fell apart when I tried to take them off of the pan. I chilled the dough, and the same thing happened. They tasted flour-y and artificial.

I made these Saturday night to bring to dinner on Easter Sunday. I added the juice and zest of one small lemon to boost the lemon flavor and they tasted so good out of the oven; I also used 1/3 reduced-fat cream cheese. The dough was pretty sticky so I threw it in the fridge for 10 minutes and then DS and I rolled them into balls and rolled a few in sugar and left a few plain. Watch them carefully while baking, because they brown on the bottom without looking much different on top. I stored one batch in a covered tin box and another batch in a covered tupperware container - by Sunday morning, they were all soft, almost soggy. I threw them back in the oven for 5 minutes and they firmed up again... I stored them on a plate with foil overnight last night but when my DH had one for breakfast this morning, they were soggy again. Very good out of the oven, not-so-good after storage.
