While looking for answers about an old 1920-30's recipe that that I found I ran across this one which is similar to Grandma's Ammonia Cookies. I want to make this until I get the correct measurements on the other one. These are very fragile, light, tender lemon cookies.

- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons baking ammonia
- 1⁄2 cup shortening
