almond/lemon sugar cookies

Almond or Lemon Sugar Cookies

Melanie from (Recipe from Homebased Mom via Frosted Bake Shop)
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. almond OR lemon extract
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
Glaze: 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1/2 tsp. almond OR lemon extract, 4-5 tsp. milk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix butter, sugar and extract in a large bowl. Mix well, about 1 to 2 minutes.

Add remaining ingredients. Beat 1 to 2 more minutes. It will be really dry if you dont mix long enough so make sure it  looks like this pic

Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet and flatten balls to 1/4 inch thickness with the bottom of a floured glass dipped in sugar.
Bake at for 7-9 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned. I like mine almost under-baked, remember they stiffen up as they cool. Cool 1 minute.
Stir together glaze ingredients with a wire whisk. Decorate cooled cookies with glaze and sprinkles.

*I used the almond and oh soooo yummy. they didnt last long in my house*
