Days of Christmas Cookies “December 19th.” Lemon Angel Wings !

The light, lemony flavor of these treats is, well, divine. And with their unique shape, they're sure to impress holiday party guests.


  • 1 1/4cups all-purpose flour
  • 1cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1/2cup sour cream
  • 1teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 10tablespoons sugar, divided


  • Place flour in a large bowl; cut in butter until crumbly. Stir in sour cream and lemon peel until well blended. Place on a piece of waxed paper; shape into a 4 1/2 inch square. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • Cut dough into four 2 1/4 - inch squares. Place one square on a piece of waxed paper sprinkled with 2 tablespoons sugar. Cover with another piece of waxed paper. Keep remaining squares refrigerated. Roll out dough into a 12 inch x 5 inch rectangle, turning often to coat both sides with sugar.
  • Lightly mark center of 12 inch side. Roll up jellyroll style to the center mark, starting with a short side and peeling paper away while rolling. Repeat rolling from other short side, so the two rolls meet in the center and resemble a scroll.
  • Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate. Repeat with remaining squares, using 2 tablespoons sugar for each. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Unwrap dough and cut into ½ inch slices; dip each side in remaining sugar. Place 2 inches apart on foil lined baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 14 minutes or until golden brown. Turn cookies over; bake 5 minutes longer. Remove to wire racks.
