Sift flour and baking powder together in a small bowl. Cream butter, add sugar slowly, mixing well. Mix in egg and lemon rind. Add flour/baking powder mixture, mix in well. Shape into balls about the size of a golf ball, place on pan, flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass. Bake at 300°F for 15 to 20 minutes, just until a bit golden on the edges. These last well if kept in a tightly covered container, and actually taste even better after a day or two as the flavors develop.
This is my mom's tried and true shortbread recipe. She got it from my grandmother, and we make these every year at Christmas.
