(Egg Milk And Wheat Free Cookies)
  • Contributed By Joel Ehrlich
  • 4 Servings
  • 4 Lemons
  • 1/2 Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Cup Cold Water
Begin The Preceding Night By Squeezing The Lemons Into A Strainer Formed By Placing A Coffee Filter In A Strainer. Strain The Lemon Juice Into A Small Bowl Containing The Cold Water – This Is A Very Slow (Drop-By-Drop) Process. Add The Sugar The Next Morning. Mix Very Well With A Wooden Spoon Until The Sugar Is Completely Dissolved. Pour Into A Tin Or Aluminum Pan. Place The Pan In The Freezer. Let Rest For About 5 Hours, Breaking Up The Solid Layer Of Ice Which Forms At Least Once Every Hour. Remove The Pan From The Freezer. Cut The Ice Into Pieces With A Knife. Place The Ice Pieces In An Ice Crusher (Or Into A Blender Running At Low Speed). The Ice Should Form A Smooth Consistent Texture Of Imperceptible Grains (Almost Like Ice Cream – No Large Grains Or Chunks). Transfer To Individual Serving Glasses.
