Excellent recipe!! As other have said the flavor is great even without the butter flavoring (although I imagine that would only add to the yumminess). I made these in 2 batches of 24, only because I miscalculated the number of guests I was expecting. Only after making the first batch did I realize I needed 24 more. For the second batch I literally eyeballed the measurements, threw all the ingredients into the bowl, mixed with a spoon, and only kept in the fridge for 30 min before rolling (while for the first batch I measured everything exactly, used an electric hand mixer, and kept the dough chilled for 4 hours). There is no difference between the two batches—both came out perfect. This recipe is very forgiving so if you’re short on time these are for you. The only thing I did differently was add a little extra salt as I think salt brings out the flavor in sugar and butter cookies. I decorated with lemon flavored royal icing.
