  • Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.

  • Cream butter in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed. Gradually add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in sour cream, lemon zest, vanilla extract, and lemon extract. Reduce speed to low; beat in dry ingredients just until blended.

  • Drop tablespoonfuls of dough on the prepared cookie sheets, spacing them 1 inch apart.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are set and edges are golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool for 1 minute. Use a wide metal spatula to transfer the cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

Light and airy. My family loved them. I added an egg for a cake like texture. I did not use lemon extract, instead I substituted orange zest. I frosted them with a drizzle of powdered sugar with the juice of the orange. Read More
