1 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon grated lemon peel

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

Lemon-Ginger Tea Cookies Recipe at
In a mixing bowl beat the butter or margarine with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the sugar, lemon peel, ginger, and cloves; beat till combined. Beat in the egg and lemon juice till combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour with a wooden spoon. Do not chill dough.

Pack dough into a cookie press fitted with the desired plate. Force dough 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. If desired, decorate cookies with slivered crystallized ginger and/or candied lemon peel.

Bake in a preheated 375 degrees F oven for 8 to 10 minutes, or till edges are set and beginning to brown. Remove cookies from pans and cool on a rack.
