  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Cream sugar and butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Whisk flour and baking powder together in a separate bowl; gradually beat into creamed butter mixture until just combined. Beat eggs, 1 at a time, into butter-flour mixture until dough is thoroughly mixed; stir in lemon extract. Drop small scoops of dough onto a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies spring back when touched, 10 to 12 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can add a lemon glaze for more flavor if you'd like, or even add lemon zest to make the lemon stand out more.

OK, now I wish I had read the reviews first. The temp is way too high...I'd go with 350 and check after 7 min. I too used zest in batter along with subbing real juice instead of extract. I'd ...

I made these exactly as directed and I thought that they were just OK. If I make these again I will definitely add in some lemon zest. I did make a lemon glaze and drizzle on top, and it was ver...

Needs more lemon (zest of 1 lemon was good), and I baked for 11 minutes at 350. I used a lemon glaze (1 c p. sugar, 1 Tbsp melted butter, a lemon juice to make it thin enough). They were barely ...

These were not super sweet - kind of subtle, which I like. We did not have lemon extract so I mixed the zest of one lemon with 1.5 tsp vanilla extract and 1 tsp lemon juice and let that sit whil...

I also put the oven to 350 for 9 mins and added some lemon juice to the batter. They are really easy to make I just wish they were a little more moist. The kids and the hubby liked them a lot, s...
