3 boiled egg yokes.( graded)
1/2 Cup. Sugar.
1 lb. good butter.(room temperature)
1 Tablespoon.vanilla extract.
1 teaspoon.lemon Juice with a little zest.
4Cups.Flour ( all-purpose flour)
Walnuts, as many as needed.
Preheat oven 350.Degrees.
If the dough still sticks to your hands add a little more flour.As my mom says, Eye IT;)
The dough should feel like play-dough in your hand,you will be rolling them in to little balls.You will insert a piece of walnut in each ball of dough. Once you finish rolling them and insert the walnut.Putting them on baking sheet,and bake for about 15-18 minuets. So they are very light brown. You can tell if they are done by looking at the bottom of the cookie.The top will look a little cracked, That is normal. Once they cooled. You roll them in powdered sugar.
(the way my grandmother did) or I also made a Lemon glaze, 2 Cups of powdered sugar and three Tablespoons of lemon juice.or more for the consistency desired. I drizzled the glaze on the cookie.Very simple and very beautiful. The cookie melts in your mouth. I hope you enjoy them.
