I have had this recipe for about 35 years. It comes from a calendar that was published by our local bank.
3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon lemon extract
- In mixing bowl sift together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. On low speed of mixer cut in butter until mixture resembles cornmeal.
- In small mixing bowl, beat eggs; add sugar and lemon extract, and beat thoroughly. Blend egg mixture into the flour/butter mixture. Chill dough.
- On lightly floured board, roll to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut with shaped cutter. Bake at 375 degrees for 6 to 8 minutes. Yield: 2 to 3 dozen. Of course, the yield depends on the size of cookie cutter you use. The cooled cookies may be decorated any way you choose.
