Serves 2 dozen | Prep Time | Cook Time

Ingredients

1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons lemon zest
1/2 teaspoons lemon extract
1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened

Frosting:
Powdered Sugar
Lemon Juice
1 drop yellow food coloring (optional)


Preheat oven to 325 degrees.



In a medium bowl, beat butter or margarin and brown sugar with an electric mixer or medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in lemn zest, lemon extract, and vanilla.



Add flour and salt to butter/sugar mixture and blend well. With a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface, roll out dough 1/4 inch thick. Cut out cookies using a 2 inch round cutter and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Reroll scraps.



Bake 13-15 minutes until cookies are pale golden but not brown. Let stand 2 minutes. Remove to a rack and let cool completely.



Mix enough powdered sugar and lemon juice to make thin mixture. Dip cookie tops in frosting. Place back on rack until frosting hardens.
