"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 !" — Anisha

semi-sweet chocolate chips
a wonderful light and lemony treat, bakes very well and easily too.
The concept of this recipe is great. However, I made the following changes so that I wouldn't have to deal with the batter being too runny: Mix together with a beater 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup butter, 1/3 cup milk, 1/4 cup lemon juice, and 1 egg. Then add 1 3/4 cups flour, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1 tsp cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp salt. Fold in chocolate chips at the end. This makes it so that the recipe is really a drop cookie recipe. The flavors actually do blend well together ( I have to admit I was a little skeptical at first). Thanks for the idea!
yuck...these were flat as pancakes. it seemed like the recipe was missing something, like flour to make them not so runny.
wonderful! Needs a lot more flour, though. I also added 1/4 tsp salt and a packet of instant lemon pudding mix. I also used both white and brown sugar. Wonderful flavor, I didn't need the frosting, the cookie has enough flavor by itself. Somewhat similar to pumpkin cookie in my opinion. I found the cookie to be just a bit dense too, but it didn't hinder the wonderful flavor.
Makes a runny batter. They were as flat as a pancake (I actually have had thicker pancakes) and were tasteless.
I highly commend you on your flavor combination - it has some of my favorite flavors together, and they really work! But this recipe is WAY too heavy on the liquids. I tried adding an egg to help it set... but it was still like a pancake, as some other reviewer mentioned. It needs leavening and a more balanced dry-to-wet ration. I will work on this recipe - it's worth tweaking to get it right! Keep experimenting!
Sorry, but I found the batter was very runny. I had to pour it into a pan and try to bake as bars instead of cookies. But, the batter never fully solidified. Plus, I got a small taste of the batter (after it had cooked for what seemed like forever) and it didn't taste very good.
The recipe as followed made a very runny dough unsuitable for drop cookies. Definitely needs more flour. Very disappointing!
