These are melt in your mouth good and a one of a kind cookie. I always triple this recipe for potluck days since everyone grabs 2 handfuls.

So yummy! I will make again, following the recipe... This time I didn't have any lemon extract or lemon zest, so I used 3-4 Tbsp lemon juice. Which of course made the dough too sticky so I added more flour and a little cornstarch, and chilled the dough for 2 hours. Anyway, the lemon flavor was barely noticeable, but hubby loved them! I chose not to use coconut or macadamias. They're soft and so pretty with the powdered sugar spots on them just like chocolate crinkles! Definitely don't overbake; they get too dry after a day or two. Great recipe!
