Cottage Cheese Cookies

Yield: 48 cookies

9 tbsp.		butter or lard, softened 120 ml.
1 1/2 cups	sugar 			 375 ml.
2		eggs, lightly beaten	 2
2 1/2 tbsp.	fresh lemon juice	 37 ml.
2 tsp.		grated lemon peel	 10 ml.
1 cup		cottage cheese		 1/4 liter
2 cups 		flour			 1/2 liter
1 tsp.		baking powder		 5 ml.
1 tsp. 		salt			 5 ml.

Using an electric mixer, cream the butter with the sugar until fluffy. Beat in the eggs, lemon juice and lemon peel. Press the cottage cheese through a sieve and add it to the batter, beating well. Sift the dry ingredients together, add them to the batter and mix thoroughly.

Drop the batter by the teaspoonful onto buttered baking sheets - spacing the mounds well apart.

Bake in a preheated 400 F. (200 C.) oven for about 15 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly browned.
