Recipe: Lemon-Basil Butter Cookies
1 cup fresh lemon-basil leaves
1 3/4 cups sugar, divided
1 pound butter, softened
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 large egg
6 cups all-purpose flour
Fresh basil sprigs for garnish
Process basil and 1/4 cup of the sugar in a food processor until blended.
Beat butter on a medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy. Gradually add remaining 1 1/2 cups
of sugar, beating well. Add lemon juice and egg, beating until blended. Gradually add flour and the sugar-basil
mixture, beating again until blended.
Shape dough in one inch balls and place two inches apart on lightly greased baking sheets. Flatten
slightly with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks. Garnish with
basil and watch them disappear!
