Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease baking sheets or line them with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, and baking powder. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  3. In another bowl, beat the eggs, milk, seeds and lemon zest until blended well. Add to the dry ingredients and blend until smooth. If the dough seems a bit stiff, add extra milk, one tablespoon at a time.
  4. On a floured surface, roll dough out 1/4 inch thick and cut using a 2-inch round cutter. lace cookies 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until edges are lightly browned, 7 to 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack.

Good, very lightly sweet cookies that are great with a cup of tea. My yield was more like 8-1/2 dozen, though, so be prepared for a lot of rolling and cutting - and sharing!

well I'll tell you......As a Scotsman living in america, for the last 20 years. These Abernathies are as good as my Grannys (Gramma).

I had never heard of these, but after reading about them, I think this is probably a good recipe for them. I replaced the shortening with butter because I never keep shortening on hand, and I found other recipes for this with butter. Very easy to make. The caraway seeds are a bit odd in a cookie and I wonder if they could be ground up first so you aren't left with so many seeds in your teeth. :-P The cookie baked up nicely and has a nice flavor.
