Ingredients

Margarine

½ cup(s)

Sugar

¾ cup(s)

Lemon zest

1 tsp(s)

Baking powder

1 tsp(s)

Baking soda

¼ tsp(s)

Egg white(s)

2 egg white(s), large

Fat free skim milk

cup(s)

Fresh lemon juice

1 tbsp(s)

All-purpose flour

1¾ cup(s)

Honey

2 tbsp(s)

Powdered sugar (icing sugar)

3 tbsp(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, beat margarine with an electric mixer on medium-high speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar, zest, baking powder and baking soda; beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl occasionally. Add egg whites, milk and lemon juice; beat until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer and then stir in remaining flour by hand.
  3. Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto 2 ungreased cookie sheets. Bake until edges are lightly browned, about 12 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire rack and let cool. Repeat with remaining cookie dough.
  4. Brush tops of each cookie with a touch of honey just before serving and then sprinkle with powdered sugar; stack in a single layer to prevent sticking. Yields 2 cookies per serving.
