    1. 1 cup sugar
    2. 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    3. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    4. 1/2 teaspoon salt
    5. 1/2 cup butter, melted
    6. 1 teaspoon lemon extract
    7. 3 tablespoons lemon juice
    8. 1 egg
    9. 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    10. 1/2 cup powdered sugar


  1. Combine the dry ingredients, except powdered sugar, in a medium sized bowl and mix well. Do the same for the wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
  2. Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and mix well with a wooden spoon.
  3. Cover the bowl with a towel and refrigerate for approximately one hour.
  4. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Remove dough from fridge. Place the powdered sugar in a small bowl. Roll cookie dough into walnut sized balls and dip in the powdered sugar, covering all sides. Use more powdered sugar as needed.
  5. Place dough balls on a nonstick cookie sheet spacing them approximately 1.5 to 2 inches apart. Bake for ten minutes. The cookies will flatten out and brown very slightly.
  6. Let cookie sheet cool for at least two minutes before moving cookies to a cooling rack.
