My favorite meal is a mixture of vegetables (except corn) on a piece of foil, a piece of fish (tilapia or salmon) on top, drizzle Sun Dried Tomato Vinigret on top. Fold over the foil to close and cook for about an hour on the grill. Delicious!! It is fun to dump it in a bowl after cooking, put mozzarella cheese on top and put under the broiler for a couple minutes.

Hope you had a great weekend! Lots of fun in the sun at our house! I saw these Lemon Cookies awhile back on Pickles and Cheese . They looked like a great summer treat!

Cream butter and sugar…until light and fluffy. Add in zest, lemon, vanilla and egg. Combine well. Add in dry ingredients.

Form into balls and roll in powdered sugar.

Makes 2-3 dozen

Ingredients:

½ cups butter, softened

1 cup granulated sugar

½ teaspoons vanilla extract

1 whole egg

1 teaspoon lemon zest

1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice

¼ teaspoons salt

¼ teaspoons baking powder

⅛ teaspoons baking soda

1-½ cup all-purpose flour

½ cups powdered sugar

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease light colored baking sheets with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Whip in vanilla, egg, lemon zest, and juice. Scrape sides and mix again. Stir in all dry ingredients slowly until just combined, excluding the powdered sugar. Scrape sides of bowl and mix again briefly. Pour powdered sugar onto a large plate. Roll a heaping teaspoon of dough into a ball and roll in powdered sugar. Place on baking sheet and repeat with remaining dough.

Bake for 9-11 minutes or until bottoms begin to barely brown and cookies look matte {not melty or shiny}. Remove from oven and cool cookies about 3 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
