1 3/4 cups all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Scant 1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup sugar

2 eggs plus 1 egg yolk

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 tablespoon lemon juice from about 1/2 lemon

2 packed teaspoons lemon zest from about 1 large lemon

1/2 cup pine nuts


Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt; set aside. In a large bowl, vigorously whisk together sugar, eggs, and egg yolk until light and creamy, about 5 minutes. Whisk in vanilla, lemon juice, and zest. Add dry ingredients and stir to combine. Stir in pine nuts. Flour your hands and form dough into one 4- by 12-inch long log . Bake until just golden and starting to dry, about 25 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 275 degrees F. When cool enough to touch, use a serrated to cut cookies on the bias to be 1 1/2-inches wide. Place cookies cut side down on baking sheet and put back in oven until dry and toasted, 15-20 minutes more.
