¾ cup white sugar

⅔ cup salted sweet cream butter, softened

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 tsp baking powder

(2) large eggs

2 tsp lemon extract


Preheat oven 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Cream sugar and butter in a bowl using an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add and whisk flour and baking powder in a separate bowl, then gradually beat into creamed butter mixture until just combined. Beat eggs, one at a time, into butter-flour mixture until dough is thoroughly mixed and then stir in lemon extract. Then drop small scoops of dough onto a baking sheet.

Bake until cookies spring back when touched for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven.


For more flavor, you can add a lemon glaze if you want, or even add lemon zest to make the lemon stand out.
