Lemon Chocolate Drop Cookies


"These cookies have just the right amount of everything to equal a delicious cookie ! Lemon, spices, and chocolate chips, topped off with a tangy lemon glaze. My friend and I got together and made them because we wanted to bake and couldn't find a recipe we liked so we made these and they were great !"
