Lemon Coconut Crinkle Cookies and Turtle Burger

Lemon Coconut Crinkle Cookies

These are delicious, if I may say so myself. Lemon and coconut is a great combination, and the ‘crinkles’ add nice crunch and added sweetness. The recipe is available here

This is bizarre. A man tried to smuggle his pet turtle through security in Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport by hiding it in a KFC hamburger. The man, Li, was about to board China Southern Airlines flight 345 to Beijing,. As Li passed through airport security, X-ray screening machines detected a few “odd protrusions” sticking out of a KFC burger that the man had packed in his bag.

Airport staff determined that the protrusions looked suspiciously like turtle limbs, and asked to inspect Li’s luggage.

“There’s no turtle in there, just a hamburger,” Li reportedly insisted. “There’s nothing special to see inside.” On inspection airport staff uncovered the pet turtle hidden inside the burger. When asked why he had devised this strange idea, Li said that he had only wanted to travel together with his “beloved” turtle.

After staff patiently explained that turtles could not be smuggled on board the plane, Li reluctantly agreed to allow a friend to care for his pet while he was away.



  1. The lemon cookies look so perfect! Perfectly crinckled ;-) and lemon + coconut do sound like an excellent company. The turtle story sounds weird...

  2. I had crinkles before but the chocolate version, this lemon coconut looks interesting
