2 3/4 cups flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract***
1 to 1 1/2 tsp. lemon extract***
1 Tbsp. dried lemon peel***
1/2 cup sugar for rolling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. (I don’t line my pans.  I use Air Bake Pans. These slide of the pan so easily.)

In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.  Set aside.

Using a mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until smooth and very fluffy.

Beat in egg, vanilla, vanilla extract, lemon extract and lemon peel.

Gradually blend in the dry ingredients.

Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls and roll in sugar.  Place on cookie sheets about 1 1/2 inches apart.

Bake 8 -10 minutes, or until lightly browned.

Let stand on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.

***NOTES: I increased vanilla to 1 1/2 tsp. and no lemon extract (I didn’t have any on hand), with 1/2 tsp. dried lemon peel.
