The "S" Cookies

1 1/8 cups of sugar
3 Tablespoons of butter
2 extra large eggs or three medium
3 tablespoons of lemon juice
Grated zest of half a lemon
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
2 1/4 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon of salt

Cream the butter.
Add the sugar and beat well.
Add the lemon juice, zest and vanilla and beat that in.
Blend the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl.
Add to the first mixture a little at a time(adding in three parts is common).
Beat well.
Let the batter stand, covered, for half an hour.

Mix together:

1 Tablespoon of flour
2 tablespoons of sugar
1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon

Place a small amount of the sugar and flour mixture on your work surface. Roll a rope about six inches long.

Use the rope to form an "S".

Place on an UN-GREASED cookie sheet, repeating till the sheet is filled, leaving plenty of room between them.

Bake at 350 degrees F for approximately 10 minutes.

With a spatula, remove to a rack to cool.

A tip from Bill:
Do not leave these on the cookie sheet too long as the sugar on the surface may harden making them hard to remove.

My cousin Janice is experimenting with these as I write.  She is finding it better to make them larger, increase the cooking time etc.  More refined instructions may appear soon, as a result.
