Lemon Dream Cookies

Lemon Dream Cookies

 (picture taken before I sprinkled with powdered sugar)

1 cup REAL butter(no substitutes), softened
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 2/3 cups flour

2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp lemon zest
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg, beaten
3 Tbsp lemon juice
1 Tbsp butter, melted

Powdered sugar for decoration(optional)

In a mixing bowl, cream butter, and powdered sugar.  Beat in vanilla.  Gradually add flour.  Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until easy to handle.  Roll into 1 inch balls.  Place 2 inches apart on a baking pan.  Using the end of a wooden spoon handle, make an indentation in the center of each cookie.  Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes.  Remove to wire racks to cool.  Makes 3 dozen.  When the last dozen is in the oven start preparing the filling.  Combine the sugar, corn starch, lemon zest and salt in a saucepan.  Stir in egg, lemon juice and butter until smooth.  Cook over medium heat until thickened.  Reduce the heat and stir another 2 minutes longer.  Cool.  Spoon 1/2 tsp into each cookie.  Dust with powdered sugar if desired.
