Lemon Crescents

These came out pretty good. They weren't as sweet as I thought they would be, though. If you are looking for a lighter, less rich cookie, this is a good option.

Lemon Crescents

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 powdered sugar
1 tsp lemon juice
2 1/4 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp grated lemon peel
1 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

In a medium bowl, beat butter and 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and lime juice until smooth. Beat in flour, salt and lemon peel.

Shape dough into crescent shapes, about 2 inches long. Place 1 inch apart on cookie sheet.

Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges just turn brown.

Roll warm cookies in powdered sugar and cool on wire rack. Dust with more powdered sugar once cooled.
