Lemon Tea Cakes

Blue Ribbon Recipe
Lemon perfection! These are a light and fresh tasting cookie. The perfect complement to your afternoon tea or a lovely evening treat. Lemonade Kool-Aid makes the cookie sweet but tart. Make sure you let the cookies completely cool before dipping into the sugar mix. They are fragile and will crumble if still warm.
Note: If you can't find superfine sugar, run ordinary sugar through your food processor for about 2 minutes. The Test Kitchen
