Cookies (Pat Morrow) Fave! Unverified!

While I found a source of candied lemon peel once and may have actually bought some, I've never actually made the recipe with the stuff. Doesn't look right in the final mix, somehow. My all-time favoriteist cookie and what got me into really rediscovering the old family recipes.
