Lemon Crinkle Cookies

Lemon Crinkle Cookies

Ever since I seen these cookies on Pinterest, I have been wanting to try them out! It is quite a popular recipe! I noticed that others that tried this recipe, had different reviews and or experiences with it!

Some thought it wasn’t lemon-y enough, others that the cookies turned out fat and round not flat like the original, others said it wasn’t sweet enough that you need icing…so I took all this and more into consideration and decided to just try it out myself!

We had guests over for dinner last night, and with all the preparations  the only thing I had left to do was dessert! I made some chocolate ice cream the night before, was planning on some cake or something….but no time! I decided to make macaroons but didn’t have any oatmeal, and no time to go out and get any either! Took a glance over to the table and noticed the bowl of dates sitting there, then I remembered these stuffed dates I love so much. Continue reading “Walnut Date Balls” »
