Southern Lemon Straws
This is an all time fave here in the South!! We love to eat these at any Holiday and are wonderul in the summer with lemon sherbert that as been sprinkled with Crushed lemon drops.. The finer,the better..
lemon juice concentrate
cream cheese, room temperature
few drops of yellow food coloring
Blend together butter and cream cheese; add sugar and cream thoroughly until fluffy.
Combine egg, lemon juice, lemon rind and yellow food coloring. Add to butter mixture until well blended.
Sift the flour and baking powder together; add to creamed mixture. Mix until well blended. Place dough in refrigerator, and chill for about 10 minutes.
Force 2-inch ribbon strips through cookie press onto ungreased baking sheets and bake at 375 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
We have dusted these with Powdered sugar.. Also, with crushed lemon drops.. The finer they are crushed,the better they are!!!
