       Title: Lemon Wafers
  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 3 servings
  
     1/2 c  Butter; softened
     1/2 c  Sugar
       1    Egg
     1/2 ts Vanilla extract
     3/4 ts Grated lemon peel
       1 c  All-purpose flour
       1 ts Baking powder
     1/4 ts Salt
  
       This is the sort of wholesome little cookie that nannies, or mommies,
   used to give to good little children. They are a tiny bit chewy and seem to
   contain the hallucinogenic ability to bring visions of rocking horses, red
   balls, and blackboards sharply into focus.“ - Charlie Baden” Preheat oven
   to 350 F.  Grease two baking sheets and set aside. Beat butter and sugar in
   a medium-size bowl until well blended. Beat in egg, vanilla, and lemon
   peel. In another medium-size bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and salt with
   a wire whisk until light and thoroughly combined.
    (Using a wire whisk to blend the dry ingredients makes sifting unnecessary
   in this case.)  Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating
   until well combined. Drop batter by rounded measuring teaspoonfuls onto
   prepared baking sheets. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes, or until golden and
   lightly browned around the edges.  Remove from cookie sheets to write rack
   to cool. Makes about 3 dozen.
   
     [Comfort Food, by Holly Garrison]  These cookies start out as a misshapen
   blob on the cookie sheet, but when they bake they turn into perfectly
   round, puffed-up cookies. Absolutely the cutest thing... Light lemon
   flavor, and you can taste the egg in it.]
