These cookies have a taste very similar to old-fashioned lemon drops.

On their own, these cookies were a failure. I iced them with the lemon cream cheese frosting on this website (see link on recipe page) which is incredible. It gave a much-needed flavor boost and made the cookies tolerably moist for the first day. The frosting was good enough to raise these to a 3 star rating. However, the texture of the cookies in this recipe is extremely dry and crumbly. After only 2 days, they were so dry as to be almost inedible. My advice is to save the lemon cream cheese frosting recipe and apply it on some better lemon cookies. I will not make this recipe again, as it was a disappointment.

Quick and easy recipe! All my co-workers loved these cookies!! I now have the recipe memorized I make them so much. I added a little extra lemon zest in the last batch and they were much more flavorful. Highly recommended!

These tasted okay, but didn't make even close to 48 like the recipe said. You do need to flatten the dough before baking or you will have balls instead of cookies. I only had to bake them for 7 minutes or they would've burned. The frosting definitely is a nice compliment to these. They wouldn't be near as good without. But the finished product was good!
