Delicious, wonderful, yummy, tasty. These little gems are just great. They have a wonderful lemony taste with a tender cake like consistency.

1 cup softened butter
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar (I use 1 cup for a less sweet cookie, because you sprinkle the tops with sugar)
1 teaspoon lemon extract
2 eggs
1 teaspoon lemon zest
3 cups flour1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons buttermilk
Additional sugar for sprinkling tops

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Beat butter in mixing bowl on medium speed for 1 minute till light, add sugar and lemon extract, beating till light and fluffy. Add eggs and lemon zest and beat well.

Stir together flour, baking soda and salt in a mixing bowl. Add to beaten mixture alternating with buttermilk.

Drop by rounded teaspoons onto a greased baking sheet. Sprinkle with sugar and bake for approximately 10 to 12 minutes or till lightly browned on edges.

Yield: 45 cookies

These sound yummy! I'll have to try to make them to go with my tea. I'm a bit obsessed with tea, and will have to visit your shop in Marietta soon!

Great to talk to you today. I should have asked about hosting one of those tea parties you mentioned.
