- Stir together flour, sugar, salt, mace, and baking powder. Cut in butter or margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Combine 1 tablespoon water and lemon extract and sprinkle over the mixture. Toss gently with a fork.
- Repeat with the remaining cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time until all is moistened.
- Form into a ball, cover and chill for about 30 minutes or until easy to handle.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Divide the dough into quarters. Roll two of the quarters into 12 x 4-inch rectangles and spread with the preserves. Roll the remaining two quarters into 12 x 4-inch rectangles and carefully place over those spread with the preserves. Trim the edges.
- Cut each rectangle into twelve 4 x 1-inch strips. Twist each strip twice and pinch ends to seal. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes.
- Remove from oven, brush with milk and sprinkle with additional sugar. Return to the oven and bake 5-8 minutes more or until done. Remove and cool on wire rack.
- Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.
