Lemon Sugar Cookies

So it gas been a very long time since I've last posted. That's what happens when life suddenly gets so busy! Hopefully I will be able to post more often from here on out.

Printable Recipe 

These are very good. The dough is somewhat dry and crumbly when you are making them, so you wouldn't want to leave the dough in the refrigerator, but once baked, they are a crunchy cookie. A nice twist on the traditional sugar cookie.

2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
1/2 cup butter, softened

3 egg yolks, one at a time and blend well
2 tsp pure lemon extract

Stir in:
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cream of tartar
2 tsp salt

Mix well. Roll into balls the size of a walnut and roll in sugar. Bake on parchment-lined cookie sheets at 300 about 20 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Sugar cookies are a favorite in my house! I love the lemon addition to these cookies...citrus is one of my favorite ingredients!

Your sugar cookies sound scrumptious with lemon in them! I love sweet and citrus together. I stopped by to respond to your question about the Maria cookies - you can find them in the Spanish section of your market or in the cookie aisle, they are sold in small cylinder rolls.
