Lemon Shortbread Cookies

We had some lemons given to us by a friend and I wanted to make some lemon cookies but I had no eggs at my disposal and so I made these.


1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup white sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons lemon zest
6 drops yellow food coloring
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
extra sugar for topping

  1. Cream together butter or margarine and sugar. Add salt, zest, juice, and food coloring. Mix until well blended.
  2. Add flour a half cup at a time, mixing well. Dough should ball up when finished. Chill for 4 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  4. Form dough into 24 cookies, make sure to flatten and form into cookie shape on a cookie sheet. Sprinkle some sugar on top of the cookies and lightly tap the top to make sure sugar sticks.
  5. Place cookie sheet in oven and bake for 6 to 8 minutes. Enjoy!
