  • 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.


  • 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.

I loved these cookies! I did add lemon zest to the batter because I didn't think it could hurt to have more lemon flavor. I must say that I think 400 degrees is too high to bake such a delicat...

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 ...

Great tasting cookies. I would suggest lowering oven temperature to 350. They are not as sweet as I like cookies so next time I'll bump up the sugar. All things considered they are darn good. My...

I read the reviews and decided to add 1tsp additional lemon extract......everybody loved them

I followed the suggestion on the lower temperature, just to be safe, and these came out great! Nice lemon flavor without any glaze.
