Lemon Cookies



So a couple of posts ago I mentioned that I might try and have a go at making some Mint Choc Chip Cookies, well the Mint side didnt come to plan and instead I though i'd try an make some Lemon & Strawberry Cookies. It was the easiest & quickest reciepe that I have tried to do so far ( not that there have been many.) The smell from them was delicious and even if i say so myself they were delicious, i will definelty be making them again.









COOKIES:

2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1/2 c. lemon juice
1 tsp. baking soda
4 1/2 c. sifted flour
1 c. shortening
1 c. buttermilk
1 lemon rind, grated
2 tsp. baking powder

ICING:

1 box powdered sugar (1 lb.) ]
2 tbsp. evaporated milk
1/4 tsp. lemon extract
2 tbsp. melted butter
Rind and juice of 1 lemon
Drops of boiling water to thin

Cream sugar and shortening. Add eggs and beat until fluffy. Add lemon juice and grated rind. Sift flour, soda and baking powder together. Add to above mixture alternating with buttermilk. Drop on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool and ice. Makes 8 to 10 dozen. Icing: Combine ingredients for icing. Mix well.
