2 T lemon juice
2 t grated lime peel
1 T lime juice
1 egg

Lemon-Lime frosting

Heat oven to 375. Beat sugar, shortening, lemon peel, lime peel, lime juice and egg in large bowl with electric mixer on med. speed. Stir in flour, baking powder and soda, and salt.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoons about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 11-13 minutes or until edges are golden. Cool 1-2 minutes, remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Frost with Lemon-Lime frosting.

Carin's going to get us all hooked! I've been addicted to lemon flavored everything since I became pregnant with my first child -- over sixteen years ago! You know I'm going to Costco tomorrow to get my very own bag of lemons just so I can try this recipe out! Thanks for sharing...Sue Q
