RG

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • Colored sugar or sprinkles


Instructions

  1. Mix flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. In a medium-size saucepan, melt butter and margarine over moderate heat. Stir in granulated sugar; remove from heat and let cool 15 minutes.
  3. Beat in eggs and lemon extract. Add flour mixture, one-fourth at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  4. Wrap dough and refrigerate 1 to 2 hours, or overnight.
  5. Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  6. Divide dough in half. On a floured board or pastry cloth or between two layers of wax paper roll one piece of dough 1/8-inch thick. Cut with assorted cookie cutters. Place cookies two inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  7. Decorate with colored sugar if desired. Repeat with remaining dough.
  8. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until edges are lightly browned. Cool on wire racks.
