chewy lemon cookies

I made some swell lemon cookies tonight & thought I'd share the recipe since I didn't see any lemon cookies in the memories. these taste great &'re wonderfully chewy. the recipe below makes sufficient cookies for one person to share with the moon & a shetland sheepdog (about 12), so you might want to double it if you have more friends than me.

preheat oven 300 F

cream together, in this order:

1/4 c (half a stick) vegan margarine
2 ounces tofutti cream cheese
1 tsp grated lemon peel
1/2 tsp lemon extract OR 2 tsp lemon juice
1/2 c brown sugar firmly packed
1/4 c heaping/overflowing turbinado sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
HALF of an "egg" (I recommend en-er-g for these)

intermix with:

1 c flour
1/2 tsp soda
scant amount salt

taste dough (for obvious reasons, and also to determine if they're lemony enough to suit you. if not, squeeze in more lemon juice and mix). bake approximately 23 minutes & cool on cookie rack.
