When I try a new recipe for the first time I make it EXACTLY as it is written.  Sometimes that makes for some seriously bad recipes.  The beauty of a cookie recipe is that you can make just a few to try them and then add to the recipe to change it, which is exactly what I had to do with these cookies.

2 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup flaked coconut
1 cup LAND O LAKES butter, softened
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
*1 tablespoon lemon emulsion
*cinnamon sugar

  • Preheat oven to 400°.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients, beating at low speed and scraping bowl often until well mixed.
  • Drop rounded teaspoons of dough 2 inches apart onto yngreased cookie sheets.
  • Bake 7-10 minutes or until edges are golden.
  • Remove immediately.
  • Cool completely.
*Now these were a bit lacking in flavor for us.  So I added a tablespoon of lemon emulsion.  They were a bit better, but still needed something so I then thought about the name and thought about Snickerdoodles and decided to roll them in cinnamon sugar and now we have a cookie!
