Italian Lemon Slice

Italian Lemon Slice
A Cupcakery dot com

3 c flour
3 t baking powder
1 t salt
1/2 c oleo or (butter)
1 c sugar
1 t. fresh lemon juice (also grate rind of lemon)
3 eggs
Sift flour, baking powder & salt You can add anise powder here if you like it, I do not. In large bowl cream butter, sugar & flavoring, beat in eggs, one at a time. Add flour mixture. Mix well, turn out onto flour table and knead for a few minutes, add flour a little at a time so it won’t be sticky. Divide into three or four balls. Roll each ball into a 1″ diameter cookie rolls (logs). Place on parchment paper lined baking sheet. Sprinkle top with colored sugar & press down slightly before baking or roll each log in coloured sugar. Bake 350° 25 min.  Slice about 1/2″ slices while still warm. ( I use a serrated knife that you would slice bread with) Spread on paper towel covered cooling rack to cool. You can also sprinkle with confectioners sugar when sliced. It is pretty. Store in airtight container.
