  • Combine butter and sugar in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs one at a time and beat well after each addition. Mix in lemon juice. Mix flour, coconut, cream of tartar, baking soda, lemon zest, and salt in a separate bowl. Add to butter mixture and beat on low speed until everything is well mixed, about 2 minutes.

  • Drop rounded teaspoonfuls of dough onto 2 ungreased cookie sheets.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until edges are lightly browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Repeat with remaining batter.

Other than cutting the recipe in half I made them exactly as directed. Baking time was perfect at 9 minutes for my oven. These are exactly as the submitter describes "crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside." One word of caution is that they do spread quite a bit. They will puff up while baking and then flatten out pretty thin so make sure you space them apart accordingly. I used a small cookie scoop and my first pan I placed them too close together and they all ran into each other. If using a half sheet pan only go 3 across the width and no more than 4 lengthwise. They are very tasty and go perfect with a cup of tea. Read More

These cookies have become my family's favourites. We like our lemon desserts pretty sour, so I added 1 tbsp more of Lemon Extract to the recipe and 2 tbsp more of Lemon juice, but overall just a wonderful, wonderful recipe! Read More
