Iced Lemon Cookies


2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1/2 c. lemon juice
1 tsp. baking soda
4 1/2 c. sifted flour
1 c. shortening
1 c. buttermilk
1 lemon rind, grated
2 tsp. baking powder


1 box powdered sugar (1 lb.) ]
2 tbsp. evaporated milk
1/4 tsp. lemon extract
2 tbsp. melted butter
Rind and juice of 1 lemon
Drops of boiling water to thin

Or you could make Cream Cheese Frosting for these cookies- in my opinion they taste better with Cream Cheese Frosting!

Cream sugar and shortening. Add eggs and beat until fluffy. Add lemon juice and grated rind. Sift flour, soda and baking powder together. Add to above mixture alternating with buttermilk. Drop on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes. Cool and ice. Makes 8 to 10 dozen. Icing: Combine ingredients for icing. Mix well. Consistency should be like a thick glaze.
