2 sticks REAL non salted butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
4 egg yolks
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tsp. grated lemon zest
3/8 tsp. lemon extract (optional)
1/2 tsp. salt
Combine ingredients. I used a mixer. Make two cylinders and wrap in wax paper. Chill for an hour.
Cut 1/4" dough with knife (much like Tube-o-cookies). Bake at 350' on greased cookie sheet for 8 minutes. Don't let the cookies get brown. Makes 3 dozen. Mmmmmm!
Comments on this recipe: One could say this receipe is an-easier-to-handle lemon square. It's easier to make and eat, but still quite delicious. They are so simple and simple looking, and I could not stop eating them. Usually, I eat 2 or 3 cookies, but I was up to 5 cookies, plus the dough yesterday!!
