I baked these for Christmas using the Nestle's white chocolate swirl morsels. The red and green added a festive touch to these yummy treats. Subtle lemon taste added just the right contrast to the white chips.

I baked these cookies for a church retreat and also gave them as gifts this past Christmas. Easy to make and absolutely delicious! You can't eat just one!

I made these cookies for my brother during Christmas. They were pretty good, but I was a little disappointed with them. I thought that they should have tasted a little more "lemony". Next time I'm going to add more lemon juice.

I made these for a party without the nuts and they were a big hit. I can't wait to try them with the cashews.

I made this into a giant cookie. I used a 12 inch pizza pan. Baked it at 350 for 20 to 25 min. IT was a huge hit at my niece Birthday party. I used butter cream icing to decorated.

Wonderfully Light and Crispy

I baked these cookies for Christmas and they were a huge hit with my family. The lemon was just a light taste and not overwhelming. I will make these again.

Tried these for the first time for my son's birthday party and they were a huge hit. They're way up there with Nestle's Original Toll House cookies. Would highly recommend you try them.
