Lemon Crinkles Cookies

READY IN: 27mins
Top Review by justcallmetoni

Simple recipe to follow with tasty results. The cookies were best when removed from the oven just after the edges began to brown giving you a crisp exterior and a chewy interior. In my oven this was about 10.5 minutes. I added a teaspoon of very fine lemon zest which enhanced the flavor a bit. These will certainly stay in my holiday cookbook.
