Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg yolk and lemon rind; mix well. Add flour gradually, until well incorporated. Shape dough into long thin rolls about 1/2 inch thick. Wrap in wax paper and chill about 30 minutes. Cut off thin slices of dough and place 4 slices together on a baking sheet, pressing down ends to resemble a four-leaf clover. Insert an additional small piece of dough to resemble a stem. Bake at 375° about 8 minutes, or until lightly browned around the edges.
Editor’s Extra: Green food coloring makes these fun, and red clovers are pretty, too. Or sprinkle with green sugar granules.
