Lemon Pound Cake Cookies

Recipe By: jaibux
“I was trying to make lemon cookies, but ended up making something totally different and I was glad with the outcome.”

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 2/3 cup salted sweet cream butter, softened
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons lemon extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Cream sugar and butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Whisk flour and baking powder together in a separate bowl; gradually beat into creamed butter mixture until just combined. Beat eggs, 1 at a time, into butter-flour mixture until dough is thoroughly mixed; stir in lemon extract. Drop small scoops of dough onto a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies spring back when touched, 10 to 12 minutes.
