lemon juice
1 tsp
grated lemon peel

Directions Step-By-Step

In a large bowl, cream butter and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy; beat in lemon juice. Combine flour and cornstarch; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Shape into two 8-in. rolls; wrap each roll in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.
