MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 14, 2013

These were so-so. I don't think I would describe them as "nutritious" as is mentioned in the description. I followed the recipe to a "T". The dough was super sticky and hard to work with. They also seemed to take nearly 20 minutes to bake fully (have no idea why). I will say the frosting was yummy. Without the frosting these cookies would be a bit boring for sure. I'm going to give it one more try with lemonade instead of orange juice. We'll see what happens. I've been baking cookies successfully for 35 years, yet have no idea why the dough was so weird and didn't want to bake in the allotted time frame.. It was a mystery for sure. If the lemon ones don't work out for me either, I'll be scrapping this recipe.

Loved the cookies, I'm just wondering how the submitter justifies calling them "nutritious"... A cup of butter, cup of sour cream, sugar, cream cheese?

Loved these cookies. After reading the reviews I decided for my first try at these I would make lemon cookies. I followed the cookie recipe exactly using lemonade and lemon peel. For the frosting I did not want to use cream cheese so I just used butter. I did not have milk on hand so I used lemon juice from the lemons used for the zest. Such wonderful real lemon flavor - these cookies are a hit! I can't wait to try orange, and will possibly even try lime.
