Ingrients & Directions

1/2 c Butter, slightly softened (1 Lemon
-stick) 1 3/4 c All-purpose or unbleached
2/3 c Granulated sugar, plus more -white flour
-for garnishing 1 lg Egg yolk beaten with 1
1 lg Egg -tablespoon water
Finely grated peel (yellow For glazing cookies.
-part only) of 1 large

Grease several baking sheets and set aside. With a mixer at medium speed,
beat the butter in a large mixer bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in the
sugar until well blended and smooth. Beat in the egg and lemon peel. With
the mixer at low speed, beat in the flour just until evenly incorporated.

Divide the dough in half. Place each portion between large sheets of waxed
paper. Use a rolling pin to roll out the dough to a scant 1/4 inch thick.
Check the undersides and smooth out any wrinkles in the waxed paper. Stack
the rolled portions on a tray or baking sheet. Refrigerate for about 20
minutes or until cold and firm, but not hard.

Heat the oven to 375F. Working with one chilled portion of dough at a time
(keep the other one chilled), peel away a layer of waxed paper. (This makes
it easier to lift the cookies from the paper later.) Replace the paper and
turn the dough over. Peel of the second layer of paper. Using a 2-inch
round or scalloped cutter (or a small juice of sherry glass) cut out the
cookies. Use a spatula to carefully lift the cookies from the paper and
place them about 1 inch apart on the baking sheets. Reroll the dough scraps
between waxed paper; rechill in the refrigerator. Repeat the process with
the second portion of dough.

Working with a few cookies at a time, brush the tops with the egg
yolk-water mixture using a pastry brush or paper towel. Sprinkle the tops
lightly with granulated sugar. Repeat until all of the cookies are

Bake the cookies for 6 to 9 minutes or until the top is just tinged with
brown and slightly darker at the edges. Let cool on the baking sheets for
about 2 minutes. Transfer to wire racks and let stand until thoroughly
cool. Store airtight for up to a week. Freeze for longer storage.

Makes 50 to 60 cookies.

1 c Chopped pecans 1/3 c Granulated sugar

1 1/2 c All-purpose flour 1 c Firmly packed light brown
1 1/4 ts Baking powder -sugar
1/4 ts Baking soda 2 tb Granulated sugar
1/4 ts Salt 1 lg Egg
8 tb (1 stick) unsalted 2 ts Vanilla extract
-butter, slightly softened

Make praline topping: On a large baking sheet in a preheated 350’F
oven, toast pecans 9 to 10 minutes, until fragrant but not burned.
Remove from oven and set aside to cool.

In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, combine sugar with 2 T
water. Bring to boil, stirring frequently to dissolve sugar. Cover
and boil 2 minutes. Uncover and cook 2 to 2 1/2 minutes longer, or
until syrup thickens slightly, bubbles and turns deep amber, but not
dark brown. Immediately add toasted pecans to syrup, stirring to
coat. (Caution: mixture is very hot.) Quickly turn praline mixture
onto a buttered dish and cool completely.

Transfer the praline to a heavy plastic bag. Using a mallet or the
back of a heavy spoon, crack the mixture into tiny pieces. Store in
an airtight container in refrigerator or freeze up to 1 month.

Make cookie dough: In a medium bowl sift together flour, baking
powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.

In another medium bowl beat butter until fluffy. Add sugars, egg and
vanilla and continue to beat until smooth and well blended. Add half
the dry mixture and beat until blended. Stir in remaining dry mixture
until well blended.

Set aside 1/3 C of the praline mixture. Stir the remaining mixture
into cookie dough.

Form dough into 1-inch balls. Dip top of each ball into reserved
praline. Space balls 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheets. Bake in
center of a preheated 375’F oven 10 to 11 minutes, or until cookies
are lightly golden around the edges. Remove from oven and let stand 2
minutes, then transfer cookies to wire racks and cool completely.
Store in an airtight container 1 week, or freeze up to 1 month. Makes
