      Sift flour and baking powder together in a small bowl.

      Mix in egg and lemon zest.
    4. 4
      Add flour/baking powder mixture, mix in well.
    5. 5
      Shape into balls about the size of a golf ball, place on pan, flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass.

      Bake at 300° for 15-20 minutes, just until a bit golden on the edges.

      These last well if kept in a tightly covered container, and actually taste even better after a day or two as the flavors develop.

      Great cookies! I added a couple of more tablespoons of sugar; the recipe amount wasn't enough for me. I added a tsp of vanilla instead of the lemon & they were great! My husband loves shortbread & kept on asking for more!

      These cookies are definitely good. I did not have any lemon rind, so I just left it out. I added a thumb print of strawberry jam in the middle of each one, and they turned out great. Recipe says it makes 48-60, but I only got about 25? Will still make again! Thanks

      Seems 325 at 20-25 minutes is better. Guess it depends on oven!
