Description Edit

Lemon cookies. Pretty, easy and very tasty. I have made them with adding lemon peel shredded very fine and the were also wonderful.

Ingredients Edit

Sugar icing Edit

  1. Mix together flour, sugar and baking powder.
  2. Add Crisco and mix until crumbly.
  3. Add eggs and mix together until thoroughly blended.
  4. Add vanilla and mix again quickly.
  5. Don't handle the dough too much.
  6. Form dough into little fingers and twist together like crossing legs and lay on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  7. Bake at 350°F for 12 to 15 minutes until light brown on bottom.
  8. Allow to cool before icing tops.

Sugar icing Edit

  1. In a small bowl, make a mound of confectioners' sugar.
  2. Add one capful of extract to mound and slowly add some water a little at a time to make a thick paste.
  3. Stir in lemon juice.
  4. Dip the top of the cookie into the sugar paste, allowing excess to drip off.
  5. Top with sprinkles, if desired, while the cookie is still wet.
