2 c. flour
1 c. powdered sugar
1/2 c. cornstarch
1 c. butter, softened
1 egg yolk
juice and zest of 1 lemon
Combine flour, powdered sugar, and cornstarch in a bowl and mix with a wire whisk. (I often use this method when a recipe calls for the ingredients to be sifted).
|Mix softened butter in with a spoon or spatula. I'm usually tempted to use the electric mixer because it goes quicker but, if you want the old-fashioned melt-in-your-mouth feel then you need to stir this one.|
|I like to use a lemon juicer but you can squeeze the juice out by hand just as well! Then stir in the zest, juice and yolk until it's well blended.|
Scoop the mixture onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden around the edges and not doughy in the middle.Homemaking Linkup Weekend is going on right now! I hope you'll link up and take my button for your blog so your friends can join in too.
Here are a few of my favorites from last week's party:
Jennifer from The Crunchy Fry is an excellent resource on cloth diapering. I am learning so much and she's just about got me convinced!
Alison from Mumtopia shared a humorous and encouraging article on Embracing Your Inner Housewife.
|Rachel of Bubbly Nature Creations has a cute and easy idea for a unique Valentine's Day treat!|
