These were amazing (followed the recipe exactly) - I won our office baking competition with them! :)
Wow! Fabulous! My husband is addicted to Trader Joe's triple ginger snaps. I never thought he'd ever try another cookie, until this one. I also upped the spice a bit and added, in a nod to the TJ's cookies, minced crystallized ginger. The combo of ginger and lemon is to die for!
Just about the finest cookie I've ever eaten! I added much more spice to mine, but they're still delicious without the extra!

These are fabulous. The only thing I changed about the third time I made them was to add more ginger and more molasses and it made them even better. I use the smallest ice cream scoop to make even sized cookies and sprinkle them with sugar before baking. They come out perfect and it saves the whole 'make them into balls' thing.
made these to share at work...comments included "totally addicting" don't change a thing in making these, super easy to do
I made these cookies and had a dozen requests for the recipe. The second time I made them, I made the cookie dough balls a little smaller and cut down on the cooking time to 9 minutes. They were perfect. They are crispier the first day you make them, softer the second day and more flavorful. These are fabulous cookies. Well worth the effort.
I loved these cookies and they were a big hit with my family. The lemon cream is delicious but the cookies are great on their own too. I'll make these again and again.
These cookies were a perfect end to the splendor lunch. I made the dough the night before & the lemon cream. I baked and assembled them that day. A little time consuming to make but worth the effort. Good combo of flavors.
These cookies are outstanding. My mother made them for a Father's Day picnic with several other recipes from the magazine, but these were definitely the highlight. She didn't have cardamom on hand, so she substituted a little bit of nutmeg. I had to ask for the recipe and am making some this weekend because my household can't stop talking about them!
I made these last night for a Memorial Day weekend cookout. They are EXCELLENT. My stand mixer is out of commission, but using my hand mixer worked just fine. I followed the recipe exactly (except I couldn't find cardamom). I made my cookies a little larger than called for (I'm spacially ignorant), so I only had about 18 sandwiches and they took 2 extra minutes to bake. (Note the butter, cream cheese and egg need to be at room temp and the dough needs an hour to chill in the fridge.) The spicy-sweet combo is wonderful. After sitting overnight, the cookies were soft and delicious. Can't wait to surprise my guests with these.
