LEMON “SHORTBREAD” COOKIES WITH LEMON ICING

 

Makes 8 to 10 servings.  

LEMON “SHORTBREAD” COOKIES WITH LEMON ICING

– Lemon Icing (recipe follows)
– 1 cup unsalted margarine
– 3/4 cup sugar
– 2 1/2 cups flour
– Grated peel of 1 lemon
– 1 cup toasted ground walnuts or pecans

Prepare the Lemon Icing; set aside.

Preheat the oven to 300 F.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until well blended. Add flour and lemon zest and beat until crumbly and moist. Blend in the nuts.

Divide the dough into 4 portions; on a floured board, knead each portion into a ball. With palm of hand, press each ball into a smooth, flat disc 1/4- to 1/3-inch thick. Cut into rounds and cut each round in half. Arrange the cookies on a greased, foil-lined or Silpat-lined baking sheet in symmetrical rows to economize space. Leave space to allow for spreading.

Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes or until lightly brown. Cool on racks. Decorate with Lemon Icing.

Makes about 2 to 3 dozen cookies.

LEMON ICING

– 1 1/8 cups powdered sugar
– 1 egg white, unbeaten
– 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
– 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract

In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine sugar, egg white, lemon juice and vanilla. Beat at low speed until the sugar is dissolved. Then beat at high speed until mixture is light and fluffy. Cover with damp towel until ready to use.

Makes about 1 1/2 cups.

“Mr. Wonderful celebrates BIRTHDAY…TODAY”

Only someone – – we know in Saint Louis will be celebrating his “BIRTHDAY”…TODAY!

This is my brother, TOM McCLARREN opening his door to the many friends and neighbors – – all coming over to wish him a very  “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” – – and wishing him all kinds of “GOOD LUCK ” and  with “BEST of WISHES” for so many things to come – – that he will have to live to be at least “110 years old” to receive all of these wonderfully good wishes!

Just look at the “WONDERFUL SMILE”  – – that you will receive when calling on TOM… today or any time – — he has that special gift that  some special “IRISH” men receive – – they love to talk and joke and make everyone feel so good – – that  before you know it – – you are now a part of his FAMILY. Everyone knows that the “IRISH” have a way of talking and telling stories – – that will keep you  coming back for more wild tales of the past and there  will never be an end to the tall  tales – – as with LIFE – – the story always continues.

This is the DAY that…  the ALMIGHTY made… and what a great DAY it ’tis to celebrate   “TOM McCLARREN”    just becoming one year older!

“HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOM … and many – many more!”

This is our TERRIFIC…Paratrooper”

“This is the army…NOW…

 

 

 

 

 

“This is the kind of music… I LOVE…”  My prayer to our CREATOR… is to keep safe all of our AMERICAN men and women… that give their lives in the service to keep AMERICA …UNITED and FREE!”

NOTE… Stay listening on the second musical add on – – because “KATE SMITH” will introduce for the first time in a movie  during the 1940’s – “GOD BLESS AMERICA” – – a real PRAYER and song – – that should  be returned to K.M.O.X. radio daily  broadcast at NOON  – – for AMERICA to hear – –  as we did  – back  then… on radio for years.
