Successful graphic design uses basic design elements as the foundation; successful old-fashioned wafers use basic ingredients as the foundation. Both take a little patience and a dab of perfection!

Old Fashion Lemon Wafers
  1. 1/2 c. sugar
  2. 1 1/2 tsp. unsalted butter
  3. 1 egg
  4. 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  5. 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
  6. 1 heaping tsp. lemon zest
  7. 3/4 c all-purpose flour
  8. 1/8 tsp. salt
  9. 1 tsp. baking powder
  10. 3 tbsp. milk

Preheat oven to 350ºF

Sift the sugar into a large bowl, cream it with the butter. Beat in the egg, vanilla, lemon juice and lemon zest.

Sift the flour, resift with the salt and baking powder.

Add the flour mixture in 3 parts, alternately with the milk. Beat the batter after each addition until it is smooth.

Drop from a teaspoon onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. Place the spoonfuls well apart, as the dough spreads readily.

Bake at 350ºF for about 7 minutes.
