2t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1C unsalted butter or margarine
2 lg. eggs
2t grated lemon rind
6 dozen 350 degrees
On wax paper put 2.5 C flour, bp and salt. In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar until light yellow and fluffy.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then vanilla and lemon rind. Stir in the flour mixture with a wooden spoon. Divide into three pieces and wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 350, butter three cookie sheets, roll out with cutters and decorate.
Bake 8-10 minutes until sides start turning brown….(I’m pretty sure I only cooked them for 8 minutes and they really weren’t brown at all. You can make these a bit thicker as well.)
This cookie is wonderful if made thicker as it is so light tasting. The lemon peel is wonderful!!
