Instructions
  1. In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add butter.
  2. Using pastry blender, cut in 1 Cup until the mixture is like crumbs.
  3. In small bowl, add sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla and lemon extract.
  4. Beat all ingredients until well mixed.
  5. Stir the liquid ingredients into the flour mixture. Knead until dough forms. Create a ball shape with your hands. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 1 Hour.
  6. Heat oven to 375. On lightly floured surface, roll out 1/4 of your dough to about 1/4 thickness. Cut with cookie cutters. Place on un-greased cookie sheets one inch apart.
  7. Bake cookies for 6-11 minutes or until edges are light brown. (I go for 6 minutes, because I like the softer cookie). Cool cookies after removing them from the pan.
  8. Frosting: Add all frosting ingredients in bowl, blend until smooth.
  9. At this point, you can use white frosting or add food coloring, per package instructions. I decorated these cookies with plain frosting and sparkles.
