Here is my recipe for the requested sugar cookies, I have made these since
the '60's and they are good.
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups sifted all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup soft margarine
1 egg white-beaten
1 teaspoon grated Lemon rind, no white
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
extra sugar to sprinkle over cookies.
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Cream sugar and margarine in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, beat egg,
lemon rind, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add to creamed mixture, mix.
3. In a large bowl, sift together the flour, salt, and baking powder. Gradually
mix dry ingredients into the creamed sugar and egg.
4. Roll dough to approx. 1/8" thick on a floured pastry board. Cut into shapes
with a cookie cutter dipped in flour. Place cookies on un ungreased cookie
sheet. Brush each cookie with the beaten egg white and sprinkle with sugar
Bake cookies at 350 degrees for approx. 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
Place cookies on a cooling rack and cool. After cool, store in a covered
container. These are good hot or cold. Can add more lemon rind for extra flavor.
