Total Calories: 94


2 cups flour
1 cup butter softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon ginger ground
Lemon Drizzle (see below)


Preheat oven to 350°.

In a medium bowl, mix flour, butter, powdered sugar, and ginger with a fork until well blended and forms a dough. On an ungreased baking sheet, pat dough into a 14 x 6-inch rectangle. Score dough deeply with the tines of a fork or a knife, dividing rectangle in half lengthwise and cutting 1-inch bars crosswise. Crimp edges if desired.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes until set and light golden brown. Cool completely on baking sheet on a wire rack. Glaze with Lemon Drizzle and break into bars along scored lines.

LEMON DRIZZLE: In a small bowl, combine 1 cup sifted powdered sugar, 2 teaspoons corn syrup, and 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind. Stir in 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice until desired consistency. Tint with 1 to 2 drops yellow food color if desired. Use on Gingered Shortbread or on cookies of your choice. Makes about 2/3 cup.
