I have friends who are vegan, and so trying to find something to bring to their house for dinner is almost impossible for me. I made this recipe with a non-dairy margarine and half a banana instead of the egg, and they were super delicious! I had to hide them from my husband to keep him from eating them all before we got to the party.

From the first time I made these (and now there have been many), these have been favorites - for their ease of preparation to their delicious, light lemon taste. My daughters now make them with THEIR children!!
I can't stress how chewy they were... the outside was crispy and the inside was sooo moist... the honey added such a great flavor to the cookie. I added one tbsp dark cocoa and replaced half of the white sugar for black sugar and the result was amazing. Besides, they were incredibly easy to make, no rolling dough and cutting required. New favorite cookie recipe!
I'm not much of a baker, but these were pretty easy and delicious. I had wanted to use our new cookie press, but the dough was much too dry and crumbly. If you squished it together with your hands, you could make the balls as indicated. I squished them down a bit as others did. I was surprised they were so chewy since the dough was so dry. Mine didn't look at all like the picture- they were really light. Even the second batch, which I left in the oven longer (which still didn't get very crispy on the outside and were still almost white). I don't mind since I love soft/chewy cookies. I am wondering if anyone has tried this with whole wheat dough? I'd like to do that next time. Also, I am thinking that if I could get it all into a ball and roll it out into a thick slab maybe we could use cookie cutters since the press was impossible. I bake with (and for) my toddler girls. :)
