Lemon Thin Cookies (almost as good as the one's Nabisco use to make)
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. :-)
- 2/3 c
- 1 tsp
- vanilla extract
- 4 tsp
- grated lemon rind
- 6 Tbsp
- 2/3 c
- all purpose flour
1Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2In 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).
3In a separte bowl beat the butter until it is light and fluffy. Add the butter to the egg mixture alternating with the flour.
4Drop 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.
5Bake the cookies for about 5 minutes, or until the edges are browned.
6Allow to cook on the sheets for 1 minute, then cool them completely on a rack.
