Yesterday here in my neck of the woods was so sunny and bright, I loved it! Felt so energetic and got alot of stuff done. Today - is gray (all day) and gloomy and I just want to shop - not good for me or my checkbook!
Here is a cookie recipe for you to try that will REMIND you of spring - even when the day is not sunny!
1/2 c. sugar
1/3 c. butter, melted
grated zest of 1 lemon
pinch of salt
1 c. + 2 tbsp. all-purpose flour
pinch of baking powder
Beat the egg and sugar together, add in the melted buter, lemon zest and salt. Stir in the dry ingredients. Cover and refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes. Divide the dough in half. Roll each half between 2 plastic sheets or parchment to about 1/16" thickness Refrigerate until firm. Preheat the oven to 400. Pell the top sheet from the dough and turn upside down. Peel off the second sheet. Use a cookie cutter and cut the cookies out. Place on baking sheets. Bake for 6-8 minutes. Cool. Very light and refreshing - try with a scoop of sherbet!
