Andy, he's an adorable little boy. He looks so serious there.

I'll be making these cookies, they sound delicious.

He was really focused on pressing the cookies. That photo was a couple of years ago. He has zero interest right now in cooking, but I'm working on it.

Good luck with that, until he discovers girls. Then all bets are off. But with that face the girls are going to be flocking to him. That's when you become the "old man, my grandfather."

Thanks Fiona , My brother is here from Florida and brought with him a bushel of pecans from his yard. Along with a pecan nutcracker, pretty neat cracker.

I picked up a couple of extra lemons at the grocery store today, with these cookies in mind. They sound so good. Hope to make a batch tomorrow.

Lemon Shortbread Cookies [FONT=Comic Sans MS]Here you go Andy! 1 cup butter 1/2 - 3/4 cup brown sugar 2 cups flour 1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice zest of one lemon Either work the dough with your hands or pulse in the food processor until ingredients are combined. You can use a cookie press with this dough, or you can make 1/2 inch diameter logs (about 2 inch) and bake those. Bake for about 15-20 minutes at 325. They should be JUST a bit golden around the edges, be careful not to overbrown them. Some folks prefer to dip the ends in melted chocolate, but I like to make a lemon glaze or leave them au naturel. Lemon Glaze 2 tbsps lemon juice 1 cup icing sugar Stir sugar into juice until it is a thick, goopy glaze. Add more lemon juice if necessary to thin. Brush onto warm cookies with a pastry brush.
