Lemon Crinkles

I stumbled upon this recipe when I was volunteering at the Ronald McDonald House Charlotte. During my shift a cookie crew came in and baked these cookies. Normally I am all about chocolate in a cookie. If it doesn't have chocolate chips, i usually skip it! These smelled so good I had to try one and boy am I glad I did. If you volunteer to be a cookie crew you are asked to leave the recipe so people with food allergies are aware of the ingredients. Well... I copied the recipe they left behind and went home to make them. The recipe below is doubled from the one I copied. They turned out perfect!

Lemon Crinkles

1 cup shortening (Crisco)

2 cups brown sugar

2 eggs

2 TBSP lemon zest

3 cups flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cream of tarter

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp ginger

Cream shortening and sugar. Add eggs and lemon zest. Combine flour, soda, tarter, salt and ginger. Add to sugar mixture until just combined. DO NOT OVER MIX. Shape into balls and roll in sugar. Bake 10 to 12 minutes at 350 degrees.
