    HokiesMom's Note:

    A recipe found from a Crisco flyer. I found the flavors to be a bit understated with their method of using lemon extract so the 2nd batch I made I used fresh squeezed lemon juice in both the dough and the frosting and also added a bit of finely grated lemon peel to the frosting.. That did it for us! I also used butter instead of shortening in the frosting - I prefer a butter frosting but if you want to use shortening go ahead (equal amounts to sub those two ingredients). If you want to use the extract use half the amount compared to fresh juice.
