  "This is the sort of wholesome little cookie that nannies, or mommies, 
  used to give to good little children.  They are a tiny bit chewy and seem
  to contain the hallucinogenic ability to bring visions of rocking horses, 
  red balls, and blackboards sharply into focus." - Charlie Baden
  Preheat oven to 350 F.
  Grease two baking sheets and set aside.
  Beat butter and sugar in a medium-size bowl until well blended. Beat in
  egg, vanilla, and lemon peel. In another medium-size bowl, mix flour,
  baking powder, and salt with a wire whisk until light and thoroughly
  combined.  (Using a wire whisk to blend the dry ingredients makes sifting
  unnecessary in this case.)
  Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, beating until well 
  combined. Drop batter by rounded measuring teaspoonfuls onto prepared
  baking sheets.
  Bake for 6 to 8 minutes, or until golden and lightly browned
  around the edges.  Remove from cookie sheets to write rack to cool.
  Makes about 3 dozen.
  Heart-preserver tip: Substitute margarine for butter.
