  1. Colored sugar for decoration Recipe by: PAUL MONTGOMERIE (NZQM86A) In large bowl beat butter, sugar and salt until pale and fluffy. Beat in whole egg, egg yolk, lemon juice and vanilla until well blended. With mixer on low gradually add flour. Divid dough in half, wrapping each piece in plastic wrap. Chill 3 hours or until firm enough to roll. Roll to 1/8 inch thick. Cut with cookie cutter and decorate as desired. Bake at 350 degrees on GREASED cookie sheets for 12 minutes or until lightly browned around edges. Cool on racks. This is one of my Christmas cookies that I make every year. The trick is fresh lemon juice. Belinda Montgomerie --
