    Ridgely's Note:

    These cookies are Fantastic! Crushed lemon drop candies just make these cookies burst with flavor. This recipe makes quite a bit of cookies and half were inhaled by my family by the end of the day. The recipe orginated by a lady named Ann Orton who was trying to duplicate a recipe that she had had at a restaurant in Salt Lake City. I have no idea what the originals tasted like, but these cookies would be hard to beat.

      These cookies were so good! I crushed my lemon drops in the blender and it worked fine. The
      lemon drops make these cookies much more flavorful than other cookies. I would probably half this recipe next time because it does make quite a bit.

      Outstanding cookies. The recipe made so many, i didn't think I was ever going to get to the end of the dough. I used Lemonheads, too. I found my blender crushed them up quite efficiently.

      These are great! I actually made them and gave them out as Christmas gifts because I wanted something different. They were a huge hit! Best cookie I have ever made! I made mine with crushed lemon heads and they gave it extra tartness, however it was not fun crushing them up!
