Serves 8 | Prep Time 20 | Cook Time 25


3 Eggs
½ Cup milk
2 Teaspoons lemon extract
½ Cup sugar
½ Cup vegetable oil
3 Cups flour
8 Teaspoons baking powder

2 ½ cups powdered sugar
⅓ cup water
2 Teaspoons lemon extract
Candy sprinkles

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the flour and baking powder in a medium-sized bowl and set aside. Beat the eggs, milk, lemon extract, sugar and canola oil in the bowl of a stand mixer. Slowly add the flour mixture until completely blended. Using a 2 teaspoon cookie scoop, form balls with the dough and space about 2 inches apart on a parchment lined baking sheet. If you don’t have a cookie scoop, use about 2 teaspoons worth of cookie dough for each cookie and roll into a ball with floured hands. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the tops of the cookies are slightly browned. After the cookies are done, put them on a wire rack to cool. To make the icing, combine the confectioners’ sugar, lemon extract and water in a bowl. Using a hand mixer, mix on medium speed until the ingredients are well combined and have a glossy look. When the cookies are completely cooled dip the tops of them in the icing and place back on the cooling rack. Sprinkle with candy sprinkles before the icing has a chance to harden.
