Grated lemon peel
Cream of tartar
Plain or colored sugar
Cream butter & sugars; beat in eggs one at a time until light &
fluffy. Beat in oil, vanilla & lemon peel. Combine dry ingredients &
gradually add to sugar mixture, beating till well blended. Wrap in
wax paper; chill several hours.
Preheat oven to 325. Grease 2 cookie sheets. Divide dough into
thirds (keep 1/3 out, refrigerate the rest till needed). Form
heaping tsp. of dough into ball. Place on cookie sheet. Flatten to
2" diameter with bottom of glass dipped in sugar. Sprinkle with
plain or colored sugar & bake 8 - 10 min. till lightly browned. Let

A wonderful tea cookie - you can color the sugar for Christmas
cookies. From my dear friend, Elaine Sullivan.
