Feature: Chewy Lemon Cookies - Tart and Sweet, Just 8 Ingredients

Chewy Lemon Cookies combine tart and sweet flavors in one easy drop cookie recipe. And better yet, these are soft, not crunchy.

They're so different from the usual, “That’s the way the cookie crumbles.”

The expression must have been coined specifically for other lemon cookie recipes - those yielding a crumbly collection of broken pieces. Too often lemon cookies have a lackluster flavor and an over-crispy texture.

But this recipe makes soft, chewy lemon cookies and packed with just the right amount of bite, thanks to three kinds of lemon: fresh lemon, lemon flavoring, and lemon juice.

Lemon lover? You’ll love these.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Bake time: 9-10 minutes
Makes about 4 dozen cookies
