DIRECTIONS

  • Cream butter, sugar,salt, lemon oil and eggs well.
  • Add ammonia powder to warmed cream.
  • Then add the flour with milk mixture alternately with the creamed mixture.
  • Make sure you have a nice soft non sticky dough,that will be nice for rolling out, but not too firm. Sometimes I do have to add a bit more flour. But if adding too much flour will make a dry cookie, and get stale faster.
  • Chill covered dough.
  • Roll on floured board about 1/2 inch thick.
  • Cut with round cookie 2 inch cutter.
  • Place on parchment lined sheet, or greased baking sheet.
  • Well apart as they rise and spread into big cookies.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • These are done when touched with finger and they spring back, and should still be white in colour, just starting to get slight golden on bottoms.
  • Allow to cool.
  • Frost with an icing sugar and butter with touch of cream to the thickness you like, flavour with extracts that you also like, and colour tints.
  • This cookies is usually large and thick, lemon flavoured slightly.
  • After frosting I also sprinkle a little coconut on top too.
  • Keep in a tight fitting tin.
