DIRECTIONS

  • Sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar; add eggs, beating well.
  • Beat in lemon rind and juice.
  • Gradually add flour mixture, then stir in oats.
  • Chill dough thoroughly (at least 2 hours).
  • Roll level tablespoonfuls of dough into balls and place onto greased cookie sheets, allowing room for cookies to spread.
  • Using a flat-bottomed glass or custard cup that has been greased and dipped into sugar, flatten each ball to a 1/4 inch thickness (dip the glass into sugar each time).
  • Bake at 375 degrees F until lightly browned around the edges, about 8 - 10 minutes.
  • Cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute, then carefully move to wire rack.
