I loved the Lemon Thin cookies. This is as close to them as I could find. They are very tasty. I am thankful my children are grown, and I don't think my cat will eat them. :-)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
In a bowl, beat eggs, sugar and vanilla for 3-4 minutes or until the mixture forms a ribbon when the beater is lifted. Keep beating and add the lemon rind (zest).
In a separte bowl beat the butter until it is light and fluffy. Add the butter to the egg mixture alternating with the flour.
Drop the batter by teaspoons about 2 1/2 inches apart on parchment lined baking sheets. Flatten the mounds into 2 inch rounds with a spoon dipped in water.
Bake the cookies for about 5 minutes, or until the edges are browned.
Allow to cook on the sheets for 1 minute, then cool them completely on a rack.
