Why I Love This Recipe


Ingredients You'll Need

Unsalted butter for the pans
2 cups all purpose flour
1 Tbs baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
2 medium lemons
cold water
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 large egg


Directions

Makes: 5 dozen dainty drops


Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.


Butter two cookie sheets.


Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Zest the two lemons into a large mixing bowl, then juice the lemons into a measuring cup.


Add enough cold water to the juice to make a scant 1/2 cup liquid, if necessary, and set aside.


Add the butter and sugar to the zest in the mixing bowl, and cream until fully blended.


Add the egg and lemon juice and beat well.


Add the dry ingredients and mix only until they are fully incorporated.


Drop the batter by the level Tablespoons 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Bake for 10 minutes,until cookies are slightly firm but not browned.


Transfer the cookies to a rack to cool completely.


Do not stack or store until cool. Store in an airtight container at room temperature.
