    Chef #1449637's Note:

    From the 1957 edition of Betty Crocker's Cook Book for Boys and Girls, this sugar cookie is fun for kids to make. My son Joel chose to make this recipe specifically because it calls for use of a grater, which he'd seen in the back of my pots and pans cupboard and wanted to try. It's a little tough to flatten these cookies, but we discovered you don't want to flatten them too thin, anyway, because then they tend to blacken. The lemon flavor is very mild, the cookie surprisingly sweet and yummy! Its texture is crisp yet light. We think boys and girls and everybody everywhere will still like this vintage, tasty treat!

      I made these with my son after he found the recipe. He thought it was a bit lemony and gave it a 4 stars because it was good but he didn't love it. Thanks for posting. They were easy and fun to make!
