Lemon Chocolate Drop Cookies

Rated as 2.27 out of 5 Stars

"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 !"

yuck...these were flat as pancakes. it seemed like the recipe was missing something, like flour to make them not so runny.

Makes a runny batter. They were as flat as a pancake (I actually have had thicker pancakes) and were tasteless.

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 fr...

After reading the reviews I decided to go with one of the alternative recipes listed in the reviews. They came out so good! I wish there was more of a lemon flavor though.
