Lemon Spritz Cookies

  • 1 1/2 sticks margarine, softened (6 ounces)
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp lemon peel, finely grated
  • 2 1/4 cups unbleached flour
  • 1 cup powdered sugar, sifted
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Preheat oven at 350°. Prepare a baking sheet with cooking spray. In a mixing bowl, combine margarine, lemon juice, and lemon peel. In another mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, and salt. Mix wet ingredients with dry ingredients just until moistened. Spoon dough into a cookie press (with desired shape template). Press cookies about 2" apart onto prepared baking sheets.
