I love lemon. There is just something about that tang and sour sweetness that is just so satisfying.

I cook and bake with lemon often because I can’t get enough.

I buy lemons by the bag and eat about half of them myself. It’s funny because my girls love to eat lemons too, and I am pretty sure that might be a bit unusual.

In any case, even if you aren’t apt to just bite into a lemon, you are sure to love these Lemon Crinkle Cookies.

These lemon crinkle cookies just melt in your mouth. They are a little bit cakey with a super soft, tender texture that is absolutely dreamy. I honestly have the hardest time not eating an entire batch at once.

These were very delicious but did not crinkle and stayed quite puffy. What did I do wrong? I would make them again though.

I'd rather use fresh lemon juice so how much of the juice to substitute for the extract? And I guess I'd have to add more flour or something too, right?

I have a question. The 1/2 cup of powder sugar is just for rolling or is part of the batter itself?

Just for rolling.

This type of cookie is one of my favorite things to buy When I visit a bakery in Shipshewana Indiana. So I was excited when I seen this recipe. I made them today. And I agree with a lot of the comments that I read. After leaving the dough in the refrigerator for about an hour it was easier to work with. They look fine. My only complaint is they don't have a lot of flavor. Definitely need to pump up the lemon. Based on a lot of the replies they may taste better tomorrow. We'll have to see.
