Coconut Lemon Cookies

I have been thinking about making some version of lemon cookies for a while.

Finally, I was feeling courageous, and I gave them a try.  When my mom came over, I gave her a few to try.  I hadn’t revealed the ingredients yet.  Then, simultaneously, she asked, “Did you put lemon in these cookies?” right as I was asking, “Did you taste my secret ingredient?”  They came out pretty good.  Hope you enjoy!  God bless!
