Spring Break

It is Spring Break here (has been since early release Wed). So that means Benjamin is...
1. home
2. bored
3. baking Ü

We've already eaten Scotcheroo's and last nite he made lemon cookies.

Here is the recipe:

Lemon Cookies

1 c. shortening

1 1/2 c. sugar

3 eggs, beaten

2 T. water

2 tsp lemon extract

1. tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

3 3/4 c. flour

1 scant cup sour cream

Lemon Frosting:

2 c. powdered sugar

4 tsp soft margarine

1 tsp lemon extract

Cream the shortening and sugar. Add the eggs, water, and lemon extract. Sift the baking soda and salt with the flour and add alternately with the sour cream. Drop onto cookie sheet and bake at 350* until light brown (10-12 minutes). Frost when cool.

For the frosting, mix together ingredients until smooth. Add some cream if not thin enough to spread.
