These crunchy Italian cookies are flavored with lemon, tea and vanilla. They go great with afternoon tea, or after dinner coffee.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 3 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
- 4 eggs
- 1 1/2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
- 1/4 cup NESTEA® Unsweetened Instant 100% Tea
- 2 tablespoons water
- 3/4 cup chopped pecans
PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease two baking sheets.
COMBINE flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Beat sugar and butter in large mixer bowl until light and creamy. Beat in eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla extract and lemon peel.
COMBINE Nestea and water in small bowl; stir until tea is dissolved. Add to sugar mixture. Gradually stir in flour mixture and nuts. Shape dough into two 11 x 2-inch logs on each baking sheet; smooth sides with rubber spatula.
