    I thought these tasted good but my kids weren't so impressed. They also went flat and didn't have the plump, crackled look like the picture. I don't think I will be using the recipe for my Christmas platter again.

    These cookies have been a hit for everyone who has tasted them. I add 1/2-1 extra tsp of lemon peel to give them even more lemon flavor. I leave the coconut out if someone doesn't like it.

    I made this recipe yesterday for my family and it was a big hit! They were super good and super easy to make. The kids had a great time rolling the cookie dough into the powdered sugar. The lemon and coconut pair perfectly together. I will definitely be making this again.

    Of all the cookie recipes I have tried, this remains my favorite. It has the perfect combination of flavors, and such a wonderfully moist and chewy consistency that I couldn't believe I had made them myself. A terrific recipe!
