Ham and Goody's Lemon Tea Cakes

Beloved in Knoxville, these tea cakes (aka cookies) are delicious!


3 cups unsifted all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
Grated lemon rind

1 1/4 cup confectioners sugar
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

Sift flour, baking powder, and soda into large bowl. Beat butter and sugar. Gradually add dry ingredients and lemon juice to sugar mixture. Chill dough for 1 hour. On a floured surfaced, roll half of the dough out to 1/8″ thickness. Cut out the cookies into desired shape. Place on ungreased baking sheets and bake at 400 degrees for 7 – 9 minutes. Glaze Mix sugar and lemon juice together. Once cookies have cooled, top with glaze. Let set before eating.
