1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/3 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup (1 1/4 sticks) butter, softened
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons white sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl of an electric beater, combine flour, cornstarch, powdered sugar, butter, lemon peel and lemon juice.
Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed (2 to 3 minutes).
Shape the dough into a 14 by 1-inch cylinder. Roll in the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar. Wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate until firm.
