Ingredients

1 each eggs
½ cup buttermilk
5 teaspoons baking soda
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup lemon juice
1 ¼ cups sugar
cups all-purpose flour
8 tablespoons butter
melted

Directions

PREHEAT OVEN TO 375℉ (190℃).

In a small bowl or 2 cup measuring cup, beat the egg until foamy.

Add the buttermilk and vanilla and blend well.

Add the baking soda, one teaspoonful at a time, sprinkling it in and cream together until the baking soda is fully incorporated.

Add the lemon juice all at once and blend into the mixture. Stir, but do not beat (you want it creamy, but without a lot of air)

The mixture will congeal into a pasty lump.

Scoop it out of the bowl with a spatula and spread it on a floured surface.

Sift the flour and ¾ cup of the sugar together and use the fingertips to work it into the egg mixture.

With a floured rolling pin, roll the dough out very thin, about 1/16 to 1/32 of an inch (1 mm) thick and with the tip of a sharp knife, cut curve about ⅜ inch high.

Sprinkle on the remainder of the sugar.

Brush each 'angel' with melted butter.

Place the angels one inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes.

These are my grandchildren's favourites. The lightest and yummiest lemon cookies you will ever eat. Mine were done after 10 minutes so keep an eye on them.

This isnt a cookie; it is a repurposed volcano experiment, you will never get past the lemon stage since it reacts as violently as the vinegar does with the baking soda in the experiment

It didn't congeal into anything. It just made a very runny batter.

This is a prank recipe that appeared in Penn & Teller's "How to Play With Your Food". The idea is to let that person who always steals your recipe steal this, and it will make a mess in their kitchen when they add the lemon juice to the baking soda.
