I love it when I'm the first reviewer of a recipe and it's a winner - and such is the case here! I wasn't sure I was going to like the lemon mixed with the cinnamon but I'm so glad I gave it a try. This is a cute, soft, buttery little Snickerdoodle of a cookie with just a hint of fresh lemon. No, actually this is more cinnamony than a Snickerdoodle because there's cinnamon in the dough here. I also generally don't like soft cookies but THIS soft cookie is gooood. My only criticism, and it's a small one that in no way affects the cookie, is that there was probably twice as much of the cinnamon-sugar mixture than I needed. I'll consider it that I'm ahead of the game, because now I have a batch of cinnamon-sugar all mixed up and ready to go for the next time I make these or maybe to sprinkle on muffins!

These are yummy and very cinnamon-y! Like a super cinnamon snickerdoodle with a hint of lemon. I cut the cinnamon-sugar mixture in half, and STILL had a lot left over. Also, I only got 40 cookies, using a small cookie scoop (each ball being about 1" in diameter). Baked for about 12 minutes. They are crispy on the outside, and soft and chewy on the inside. So nice with a glass of cold milk! I couldn't stop eating them!
