How to Make It
Cream butter in a large mixing bowl; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add lemon juice and vanilla; mix well.
Sift together flour, soda, cinnamon, and allspice in a medium mixing bowl; gradually add to creamed mixture, stirring well after each addition.
Press dough from a cookie press onto lightly greased cookie sheets, making 12-inch ribbon like strips. Bake at 350° for 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
Cut each 12-inch strip into 3- inch segments while warm. Carefully remove from cookie sheets, and cool on wire racks.
