Swiss Milano Butter Cookies

In a large bowl, stir the butter until smooth. Add the sugar, salt and three of the eggs. Stir until the ingredients are evenly mixed. Grate lemon peel and add to mixture. Add the flour, mixing well; knead into a soft dough on a floured surface. Cover the dough and let rest for about two hours in a cool place. Cut the dough into parts and roll out on a flat surface, approximately 1/4" thick. Cut out shapes with cookie cutters of your choice; place on a cookie sheet. Let stand for about ten minutes. Just before baking, brush the cookies with the egg yolk. Bake for ten minutes at 400-degrees F. Allow to cool before serving.
