How to Make Lemon Thin Cookies (almost as good as the one's Nabisco use to make)
- 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.

- Allow to cook on the sheets for 1 minute, then cool them completely on a rack.
