Pearly lemon-raspberry cookies
As I discover my patient side these days, please marvel ;-) at my weekends work: lemon-raspberry cookies.
For 60 pieces:
3 1/3 cup flour (400g)
1 cup margarine (200g)
1/2 cup sugar (100g)
2 tablespoon raspberry-paste (not mandatory)
paring of half a lemon
if required: some lemon juice
Knead the flour with margarine, sugar, the raspberry-paste and the grated lemon paring to a smooth dough. Form a bowl out of it and put it for about 2 hours into the refrigerator. Afterwards cut out the cookies and bake them at 360°F for about 10-15 minutes (depending a little bit of the size of your cookies)
Now purfle the chilled sugar cookies with a dilution of powdered sugar, lemon juice and a food coloring of your choice. The result will sweeten your and your's darling tea time...
