Kandace's Thoughts

Tart, chewy lemon macaroons.

I’d recommend at least doubling this recipe, as the cookies are addictive and go quite fast!

I just made these with lime juice instead of lemon with a touch of vanilla--- sooooo good! The first batch my kids devoured the dough before I got a chance to get them dehydrated!

Hi,

I made these. They are wonderful. I wanted to mention to the person above who was dissatisfied with her try that they may have needed to stay in the dehydrator longer to mellow the lemon, or she could add a little vanilla bean or pure extract to round it out; maybe a pinch of sea salt. I ended up having to do them with pecans(no cashews) and I actually think I added too much coconut and they are STILL a tasted great. Thank you to all who contribute these fabulous recipes. You are helping me to move in a most positive direction. I hope to contribute in the future. Kandace, you are a woman to be greatly admired. thanks.

I just made a double batch of these with the inclusion of: 1/4 dried blueberries, 1/2 vanilla bean, 1T Maca, and 1T Mesquite. Good thing I made a double batch... half of it never made it to the dehydrator.

Fantastic! Next time, I'm going to use key limes instead of lemons to make a raw version of key lime cookies. Great recipe!

Mine are in the dehydrator now and they don't look anything like yours. I think I overprocessed them because the batter turned into a solid paste, not crumbly at all. They taste ok.

What'd I do wrong???

I just put a batch of these in the dehydrator and I don't know if they'll make it the full 12 hours! The dough was sooo delicious. FYI Elizabethh, I didn't have cashews so I used macadamia nuts and from the taste of the dough I think it's a real good match. Thanks Kandace for sharing this recipe and thanks also to the rest of the Goneraw staff for making sure the good ones come around more than once!

Don't try to make a tripple batch unless you have a really big food processor. Only a double batch fits. OOOPPSSS.

Made these today with almond pulp and added coconut water for moisture. They are partially dehydrated and so far they are very good.

These were absolutely delicious, I wanted to save some for my daughters to try, but just couldn't wait a couple of days and finished them off. Next day I used the last of my cashews and made another batch. Needless to say, my daughters never got any. Kandace, thank you so much. This recipe is a definite keeper!!!

So glad to hear so many of you are enjoying this recipe! I just got a call from my Dad, about as far from a raw vegan eater as you can get, and he asked me to make him a batch of these again. How awesome is that!

Whoa! This is the best lemon cookie on earth. Flavor is out of this world. The best part was licking the bowl while waiting for them dehydrate. This might be breakfast someday. A must try!

I used Almonds and made them flatter (so they would fit into my lunch box) They taste so good. They gave me some good ideas to make a Macadamia and Date cookie, a kinda sticky toffee cookie... I'll have to post it if it works...

So I tried this batch with my own dehydrated coconut and the texture was so so....anyway the flavor was great although a little too much lemon, so I wanted to try again....I made the batch again with less lemon, purchased some organic dehydrated coconut and have put them in the dehydrator....I'll let you guys know tomorrow how they came how....this was a totally different experience than the first time....can't wait

Ok so I didn't have any dried coconut but a fresh one so I dehydrated my coconut meat and it yielded only a 1/2 cup of dried coconut. They're in the dehydrator as we speak but the batter was heavenly. I can't wait to try them tomorrow. If the batter is any indicator of how they taste...boy oh boy! I was thinking of using this recipe (changed slightly) as a frosting for a raw cake.

I made 3 whole batches of these. But upon tasting, found these very disappointing. The lemon was overpowering, and the lemon-cashew mix didn't vibe well for me. It gave the cookies a sour, rather musky, flavor. I ended up tossing the three batches and regretting having wasted so much money for the ingredients. Darn.
