|EVERY FEW MINUTES|
|ITALIAN LEMON COOKIES|
3 c. all purpose flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1/2 c. white sugar
1/2 c. butter, soft
2 tbsp. lemon flavoring or 1 whole lemon rind, grated
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease cookie sheets. Cream butter. Add sugar and beat until mixed. Mix in eggs and lemon flavoring. In a separate bowl, stir flour and baking powder together. Add flour mixture to butter mixture. Note: If batter is too dry to mix, add a bit of milk. Use hands to shape pieces of dough into a loop shape (or modified pretzel shape). Place on cookie sheets and bake 8 to 10 minutes or longer if bottoms are not browned.
Optional: Frost cookies with a basic confectioners sugar icing when hot from the oven.
Makes 3 dozen.
