Lemon Butter Cookies


A light and fluffy cookie that will go well with tea, coffee or cocoa.

Cream thoroughly

     1 cup butter

Add gradually, creaming well

     1 cup light brown sugar


     2 eggs, well beaten

     Grated rind of 1 lemon

     Juice of 1/2 lemon

     1 tsp cinnamon

     1/4 tsp powdered clove

     1/4 tsp salt

Mix well. Blend in

     2 cups flour

Add more flour, if necessary, to make the dough thick enough to roll out. Chill. Roll 1/8 inch thick and cut out.


Place drops approximately golf ball size on greased & floured cookie sheet.

Bake until delicately brown at 350, about 10 minutes.

    Sound like great cookies! I especially like the way the ingredients list starts. Reminds me of the start of my food poll series. I know you have lots of other cookies still to come…. but first posted were made with butter! http://wp.me/sFMs3-debate
