So, if you like crisp sugar cookies, this may not be the recipe for you. I modified this recipe from one my brother uses. Like me, Andy likes his cookies soft, but he doesn’t use lemon. Therefore, if you are a purist, just leave the lemon behind, and you will have Andy’s recipe! 🙂
From start to finish, this recipe will take you approximately 25 minutes.
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp lemon extract
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder, and set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth.
Beat in egg and vanilla.
Gradually blend in the dry ingredients.
Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, and place onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden.
Let stand on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.
