Lemon snaps

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
2 cups Brown Sugar
1 cup Shortening; (I used the lower fat margarine
2 teaspoons Lemon flavoring
2 Eggs
3 cups Flour
2 teaspoons Baking soda
2 teaspoons Cream of tartar
1 teaspoon Salt
20 Dried Lemon Pepper chiles; dehydrated and ground to a fine powder.

I told her I had planted some Lemon Peppers and that they were full of chiles. It was suggested that they may be good in cookies. I finally harvested about a half gallon of ripe peppers last week. After a short run through the dehydrator, then to the grinder to a fine powder. I started the search for a worthy cookie recipe last week and came up with one in one of those church fund raising cook books you feel compeled to buy from the coworkers. I made up a batch and they were fantastic. The Lemon peppers are fairly hot, maybe a 6-7 or 8 on the 1-10 scale.

Mix ingredients together and chill. Form into balls and dip in sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

pour large glass of milk and enjoy. They are best when warm.
