Gooseberry Patch Review and Giveaway: Lemon Slice Cookies

As promised I have another yummy recipe to share with you from the Gooseberry Patch Big Book of Home Cooking.  This cookie recipe is fairly simple so I set my girls to work in the kitchen on it.  They did a great job!  Yesterday a group of us took cookies to our local firefighters to thank them for our service.  Since it was the anniversary of 9/11 we thought it would be a wonderful encouragement to them for the jobs that they do.

Lemon Slice Cookies

1 c. butter, softened
1 c. brown sugar, packed
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
1 T. lemon zest
2 T. lemon juice
2 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt

Beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy; blend in egg, lemon zest and lemon juice.  Combine flour, baking soda and salt; add to butter mixture and mix until just blended.  Divide dough in half; with floured hands, shape each half into a 10-inch long log.  Wrap each in plastic wrap; refrigerate until firm.  Cut each roll into 1/4-inch thick slices; arrange on greased baking sheets.  Bake at 400 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes; cool on a wire rack.  Makes about 3 dozen.
