Cassie's Story

These cookies are melt in your mouth good. One of my favorites.


I believe this recipe came from one of my TOH magazines.

Ingredients

3/4 c
butter, softened
1/3 c
confectioners' sugar
1 tsp
lemon juice
1 1/4 c
all-purpose flour
1/2 c
cornstarch
FROSTING
1/4 c
butter, softened
3/4 c
confectioners' sugar
1 tsp
lemon juice
1 tsp
grated lemon peel
1 - 3
drops yellow food coloring, optional

Directions Step-By-Step

1
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.
2
Unwrap and cut into 1/4-inch slices. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 8-12 minutes or until the cookies are firm to the touch. Remove to wire racks to cool.
3
For frosting, in a small bowl, beat the butter and confectioners' sugar until smooth. Stir in the lemon juice, lemon peel and food coloring. Frost cooled cookies.

I consider the ones I ask that I used to know, but can't get my brain to dig deep enough to get it, stupid on my behalf. I have Dercum's and it has really rittle me for some "UNKNOWN" reason. Hopefully they'll have some answer for me and "my kind"! lol!!!

They remind me a little of the Mexican wedding cakes that you roll in powdered sugar; no eggs in them either.

Billie, no question is stupid!!!
