1 cup butter -- Do not use margarine;

Cream butter and sugar, then cream in eggs. To the creamed mixture, add flour, lemon thyme, lemon juice and lemon rind. Shape into tablespoon-sized balls and roll in sugar. Flatten slightly with the bottom of a glass. Place on cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.
