Baking: Lemon Cookies

Thanksgiving is filled with traditional flavors; pumpkin pie, pecan pie, turkey, gravy and stuffing. But I though I would shake it up with lemon cookies.

These cookies are so easy to make and a delicious alternative to the usual Thanksgiving flavors.

Cream 1 c. butter, softened and 1 t. of lemon zest.

Gradually add 1 c. powdered sugar. Combine 2 cups of flour and 1/4 t. salt.

Beat until blended. Shape dough into disc.

Roll out onto a floured board to 2 1/2 inch thick.

Place 1/2 inch apart on a cookie sheet

Bake at 325 degrees, 12 to 14 minutes until edges are slightly browned.

The cookies are light and delicate. A refreshing taste of summer in the middle of winter.
