moment they take a bite!! Enjoy!
1 c. butter, no substitutes
1 c. powdered sugar
1 c. sugar
1 c. Crisco oil
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. fresh, grated lemon peel
4 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cream of tartar
1 tsp. salt
Colored sugar for decoration
Cream butter with sugars. Beat in eggs one at a time until light and fluffy. Add
oil, vanilla, and lemon peel. Beat until well mixed. Blend in dry ingredients
and mix well. Chill dough several hours or overnight. Shape dough into balls
about the size of walnuts and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten each
cookie with the bottom of a glass dipped in granulated sugar. Sprinkle with
colored sugar. Bake at 350-degree oven 8-10 minutes until lightly browned. Makes
about 8 dozen. Light, delicious, and highly requested!
