Lemon Sugar Cookies

From: Great American Brand Name Cookbook

3 cups unsifted flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups sugar
1 cup shortening
2 eggs
1/4 cup Lemon Juice

Preheat oven to 350. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside. In large mixer bowl, beat sugar and shortening until fluffy; beat in eggs. Stir in dry ingredients, then lemon juice; mix well. Chill 2 hours. Shape into balls; roll in additional sugar. Place on greased baking sheets; flatten. Bake 8-10 minutes or until done.

Thumbs up! Such a simple recipe and such delicious cookies. A bit more flavor than your average sugar cookies. I will definitely make these again!
