"This is my great-grandmother's recipe. It has survived four generations and is still at the top of my cut-out recipe list. The secret is to roll the dough extra thin! Frost with buttercream frosting for best taste."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease baking sheets.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar in a large bowl. Blend in the eggs, lemon extract, and vanilla extract. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda in a separate bowl. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, beating continually. Stir in the oatmeal.
  3. Roll the dough out onto a lightly-floured surface to about 1/8-inch thickness. Cut dough into shapes using cookie cutters and arrange them on the prepared sheets.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until edges begin to brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool on a cooling rack before frosting.

This is my absolute FAVORITE recipe. I made NO changes and my family says these are the BEST!!!!

We loved the addition of oats! I used powdered lemon peel instead of extract.

I loved these. All my family loved them too, especially the fact that they were crunchy. Cutting them was a breeze and no dough-chilling-time required had me double-checking the recipe before I ...

A few changes for me: I used egg replacer and replaced 1/2 cup of the white sugar with 1/2 cup of brown sugar, also added 1/2 cup raisons and 1/2 cup less oatmeal so the dough wasn‘t too dry. ...
