"If you like lemon and you like cookies, this recipe is for you! I discovered it on Pinterest and it won the "Top Cookie Award" on an LDS food blog. I've been baking and making cookies for 40 years and haven't stumbled upon a better cookie than this one. It's very refreshing and light, but the texture is what really makes this cookie stand out. Crunchy on the outside and just the right chewy softness on the inside. Wonderful!"

"A nice, light cookie for summer! I rolled mine in granulated sugar rather than powdered for a little extra crunch. Next time will add some zest to the sugar before rolling for more lemon flavor."
"Great recipe, but I wanted it a little more lemony. I doubled the lemon juice to 2T and put the zest of 2 full lemons in the batter. I added some extra flour to absorb the extra lemon juice, but I think I will add more next time because most of the powdered sugar was absorbed in the oven. I'll definitely make these again!"
"I usually make #342635 as a Christmas cookie, but did not have all of the ingredients on hand to make it this year (holiday's come too quick). So I found this recipe, which is very similar, & had every ingredient on hand. I used bottled lemon juice & dehydrated lemon peel. After reading the other reviews, I decided to triple the amount of lemon juice & peel. I just finished baking my first pan & had to try one, very good with a very good lemon flavor. Thank you so much for posting & helping me out this holiday season ;)"
"Great cookie! Doubled lemon juice and zest. Will add even more next time. Thanks for sharing."
"YUMMMMMM. We love lemon cookies and this recipe is a real keeper, used fresh lemons from my tree. They are light and full of lemon flavor. Thanks for a great recipe."
"Love this recipe! It is easy and the cookies are absolutely delicious. Today I made two batches. The first with the lemon as called for and the second I switched out the lemon zest and juice for orange. They were even better. Scrumptious little bites of cakey cookie goodness, with a hint of orange."
"Quick, light and oooooooh so easy. I started, made, cleaned up from and ate 2 within 45 minutes! I made my small and think they would make an excellent sandwich cookie with marscarpone raspberry filling! Next time! I also found this recipe on Pinterest and was happy to find it had already been put into food.com"
"Delicious lemon cookie! Crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy in the middle."
"I, too, found this cookie on Pinterest and knew I had to make them! They are easy to put together and taste delicious! I probably used a bit more than a tablespoon of lemon juice, but that only increases the delicate lemon flavor. This is a great cookie!"
