A Baking and Books Post from Nikki Tate

Here's another Baking and Books recipe from author, Nikki Tate.  

One of my favourite authors is Polly Horvath. Her quirky sense of humour and oddball characters never fail to delight me! One of the things I most enjoyed about her novel Everything on a Waffle was the inclusion of all kinds of recipes. At this time of year, I'm always looking for cookie recipes and this one is easy and delicious. 

Aunt Tilly's Lemon Sugar Cookies

Mix together a cup of sugar and 2 sticks of butter and some salt. I don't remember how much Miss Honeycut said, so go with a pinch. Put in some grated lemon zest. Add 2 eggs and 2 teaspoons of vanilla. Beat it all together and add 2 1/2 cups of flour. Roll it out and cut with a drinking glass into rounds and bake at 350 degrees. She didn't say how long but probably until slightly brown. That will usually do it.
