I have to admit that I was skeptical about these little cookies. I doubled the recipe and used one box of lemon instant pudding and one box of cheesecake instant pudding. They turned out fantastic and were eaten within minutes. Definitely will make again.

These were very easy, but not that sweet. I melted white chocolate on top to sweeten them up, but they still taste like lemon flavored biscuits. My husband loved them though.

These cookies were pretty good - very very fast to make if you are in a hurry. My batch disappeared just as fast as they were made - would suggest adding a sugar coating to the top just before baking to help give them some texture.

these are good!!! I wonder if it would work if I change the pudding flavor? it didnt make the yield. it made about 8 cookies. update: I tried these with vanilla pudding and vanilla extract added. Excellent.

They are really great. For change I also made them with coconut or chocolate pudding and they still turned out perfect.

I love these cookies! So quick and easy... I roll the balls of dough in confectioners sugar before baking them - yummy!

Absolutely fantastic! Deeee-licious! This recipe is so easy and fast that I was able to make a batch while my 4-week-old son took one of his notoriously short naps. My batch made 2 dozen instead of the 1 1/2 dozen stated in the recipe. Lucky me! I recommend doubling or tripling the recipe so you don't have to be stingy! I also cut down the time to 8 1/2 min and they were just right. Light inside and just crispy enough on the outside. My new favorite cookie! Yumm!!

This is a breadier cokie that reminded me of a soft lemon shortbread. Mild lemon flavor, not too sweet. I liked that it absorbed tea and milk easily (I'm a dunker). Some royal icing or sugar on top might satisfy a stronger sweet tooth. I enjoyed them, though I can see how the biscuit-y quality might turn some people off.
