Lemon Snicker doodles
( from my friend LeeAnn!)
1 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 tsp lemon zest
2-3 tsp lemon flavoring
Sift together: ( I don't sift, I just dump it all in)
2 3/4 cups flour
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. salt
Combine both mixtures and roll dough into walnut sized balls. Roll each ball in sugar.
Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes until light brown.
Yummy Lemon bars
1 C all-purpose flour
1/2 C sifted powdered sugar cup.
1/2 C melted butter
2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 eggs, beaten
1 C sugar
Grated lemon peel from 1 large lemon
3 tbsp. lemon juice (I used a bit more)
Combine 1 C flour, and 1/2 C powdered sugar. Add melted butter, and mix well.
Spoon into a 9 inch GLASS square baking pan; press evenly over bottom, and up the sides about 1/4 inch. Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes, or until lightly browned. (It is really light at 20 minutes, so I just took it out after 20 minutes)
Combine 2 tbsp. flour and baking powder; set aside.
Combine eggs, sugar, lemon peel, and lemon juice. Beat well.
Stir dry ingredients into egg mixture, mix, and pour over baked crust.
Bake at 350° for 25 minutes, or until lightly browned and set.
Remove from oven, and sprinkle powdered sugar over top.
Let cool and cut into squares...
