Lemon Shortbread Cookies

1 1/4 c. unsalted butter
1/4 c. Lemon Olive Oil
2/3 c. white sugar
2 Tbsp. fresh lemon zest
2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. Lemon Sugar for decoration

In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and 2/3 cup of sugar until light and fluffy. Drizzle Lemon Oil until fully mixed. Stir in the flour salt and lemon zest until well blended. The dough will be somewhat soft. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees F). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into rectangles 1 1/2x2 inches in size. Place cookies 1 inch apart on the lined cookie sheets. Sprinkle the remaining sugar over the tops. Bake for 8 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden at the edges. Cool on wire racks, and store in an airtight container at room temperature.
