You can completely skip the zest and it's still like crack. Awesome recipie.

I used orange zest because I didn't have lemon. They were still wonderful. I also use ground flax as an egg substitute (due to food allergies) and they turned out great!

These were really good cookies! I am so happy to find a 100% whole wheat cookie recipe that my family will eat without question. I used white whole wheat flour, because of its milder flavor, and my hubby was so disappointed when the cookies were gone. A few comments I have is that I'm not sure I'd call them "sugar cookies", because of the spices involved, and the fact that cinnamon is included in the sugar coating (kinda like a snickerdoodle w/lemon flavor). Whatever you decide to call them, they are good. I know that these will be requested very soon, because whenever I can find one recipe that all 8 (yes, eight!) of us agree on, I know I've found a winner! Thanks so much!
