  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 1 servings
  
     3/4 c  Butter; softened
     3/4 c  Sugar
       1 lg Egg
       1 tb Lemon rind; grated
       1 ts Vanilla extract
   2 1/4 c  All-purpose flour
     1/4 ts Salt
            Water
  
     A GOOD cut out cookie that holds it’s shape in moving from cutting board
   to cookie sheet.  This is a great one, and a really good idea for
   decorating, using “edible tempra” colors.
       Cream butter in large mixer bowl.  Add sugar; beat until light and
   fluffy.  Beat in egg, lemon peel and extract until well blended. Gradually
   mix in flour and salt until well blended. Beat in water, a few drops at a
   time, only until dough starts to come away from sides of bowl. Shape dough
   into a large flat  disk; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 2-3 hours.
        Preheat oven to 350.  Roll dough on lightly floured surface to 1/8
   thickness.  Cut with cookie cutters dipped in flour. Bake 10-12 minutes or
   until cookies begin to brown around the edges. Carefully remove from cookie
   sheets.  Cool completely on  wire racks. Decorate as desired if cookies
   have not been painted.
