Lemon Cookies

Very good. Next time I might add some lemon zest and juice to increase the flavor a little. Also might try other flavors i.e.; strawberry, blueberry, etc.

These were really good. Can I use just the cake mix as directed on the box, with the eggs, water and oil? And perhaps use a powered sugar glaze instead of icing? Serving size? Dietitian comment: You may need to decrease the amount of water so the batter is thicker like cookie dough. It's worth trying.

The first time I made these I didn't have enough whipped cream, so I substituted 1/2 cup 1% milk for the amount I was short on the whipped topping. I whisked the milk for a few seconds. It made the much lighter and fluffier than when I made them as listed.

I guess these would be alright without the powdered sugar for diabetics?

Looking forward to this. But is the bought cake mix allowed on the renal diet? Moderator response: Yes the cake mix is ok. Look at the nutrient totals for these cookies and you will see the sodium, potassium and phosphorus counts are low.

Great cookie but I think that the dough should be chilled for a couple hours to make it easier to work with.

Please go back to showing recipes for featured recipes when you click on them! I hate having to pull up the menu and search for what is featured! I love this section & try most of the recipes. I'm a big fan of jicama & really love those recipes!Are quinoa, spelt & millet acceptable grains? Moderator comment: Quinoa is very high in potassium and phosphorus. Millet and spelt are lower but are comparable to other whole grains as opposed to refined grains.

Great recipe! Very easy to make, but dough can get quite stiff to work with - make sure you have a GOOD mixer.
