  • 3/4 pound butter
  • 3/4 pound granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 pounds flour
  • 9 egg yolks, beaten
  • Grated rind of 1 lemon


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together well.
  3. Add beaten eggs and lemon rind, mix well together.
  4. Add flour and mix until smooth; chill the dough for an hour.
  5. Roll dough out on a lightly floured bread board and make into "S" shapes by pinching off a piece of dough, rolling it quickly between your hands, and shaping it on a cookie sheet; continue until all dough is made up. These are best when put in a cool place overnight and baked the next day, but chilling them in the freezer for a while should work.
  6. Bake in moderate oven for just a few minutes, until baked but only slightly browned.
