Directions

  1. Whisk the eggs in a large bowl. Blend in sugar and beat until mixture is thick and pale, about 10 minutes. Mix in the melted butter and salt. Gradually fold in the flour and lemon zest. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour or, preferably, overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease cookie sheet.
  3. On a floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes using cookie cutters. Place cookies on prepared cookie sheet. Brush with beaten egg yolks and decorate with sprinkles.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until golden at the edges, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool cookies on racks.

I was very satified with the taste of this cookie. I think it could have used more flavor though. But other than that I would reccomend this.

Loved these!!! I made these with my Girl Scout Troop for Thinking Day! They were hard to roll out at first. I made a double batch and made most of these up with the girls helping. We ran out of time and I had to finish the next day with my Daughter. It was so much easier after being in the Fridge overnight - Will add this recipe to my Holiday collection -already decided to use this as Teacher gifts Christmas 2011!!
