Lemon Cookies

1 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon lemon rind, grated
3 1/2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Maybe more lemon rind; maybe yellow food coloring

Cream together butter and sugar until smooth.

Add egg and grated lemon rind.

Sift together flour, salt and soda
Add to creamed mixture gradually.

Add lemon juice.

Add a little more flour or lemon juice to make a non-sticky dough that holds together.

These will hold a design from a cookie press (form balls and use a press), or roll out and cut with cookie cutters.

Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on the size of the cookies.
