I’m sorry Pepperidge Farms, I never thought I would say this, but you pale in comparison, yes… it’s true. I don’t ever have to by another boxed or bagged sugar cookie again, this is the one, the softest, chewiest , melt in your mouth sugar cookie I’ve ever made. One recipe obsession down….!. HA HA!!

* 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 cup butter, softened
* 1 1/2 cups white sugar
* 1 egg
* 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
* 1 – 1 1/2 teaspoons lemon extract (depending on how lemony you want them to be!)
* 1 tablespoon dried lemon peel
* 1/2 cup sugar for rolling cookies
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
2. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
3. Using a mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until smooth and very fluffy.
4. Beat in egg, vanilla extract, lemon extract and lemon peel.

WOW HI BUNNY!!
Love that bunny, we adopted 2 cutie pies a while ago. Cinnabun & Sugarplum. Sounds like yummy buns lol
Did you get an APPLE? computer that is…. I love mine.
If I ever send in a recipe Bunny, call the paramedics, quick. I would love to make those cosmo popsicles.. I think I can do that. My BFF Julie would LOVE those for sure.
We don’t have Pepridgefarm cookies here in Ontario, Canada (how ever you spell it) but yours look delish!
Ok now I have to go and eat, again. It’s going to be a long winter.. lol
I love the bunny pics! Congrats on the new lap top! Yay! 🙂
Those sugar cookies look to die for!
oh i love the chicken, everything looks so good!
Carol, I just wanted to drop a quick line to let you know I made your Simply Great Chicken for dinner last night, and you are right, it is Simply Great!! What a winner in this household. Of course, I am going to have to make this again and blog it because we need to get the word out to as many people as possible, grins. We will be enjoying this one OFTEN, I can assure you. What a treasure and one for the family archives. I want all our kids to know about this..
It is amazing how dependent we are on technology! Love that juicy looking chicken and ice pops!
I would have been unbearable too, can’t live with out the compy.
Loving the lollies, and those cookies look delicious!
OMG OMG your bunny!! cutest thing that made my day!
Oh, those cookies look divine!
Yep, it’s time to panic when you don’t have a computer at your beck and call! Good thing the hubby came to the rescue with a new laptop for you. Your sugar cookies do look very, very good. There are so many sugar cookie recipes out there, but these look more appetizing than many I’ve seen. If Bunny’s Warm Oven says they’re like Pep. Farm, then I’ve got to give them a try! (Your bunny photos are so priceless, as usual!) — Jane
I hate it when that happens. I cant live without a comp too! The chicken looks amazing!
Carol, I posted your delicious chicken recipe!!!!
Popped over from Katy’s blog and yep…she is right…nice blog you have here! I shall link to you in my sidebar so those visiting my site have a good read as well! Great recipes…well done ladies…beautiful!
Yesterday I made the chicken recipe which was mm..mmm good and today I made these cookies and they are awesome..they really are soft and chewy and the lemon..well that just took it over the top!
Thank you for these recipes:)
That chicken looks devine. And your photo of the adult treats in an adult glass…too creative and cute! You go girl!
How many does this make?
These were fantastic!! I’ll never use another recipe! Thank you!
Great recipe! Thanks for sharing. I made them today. I divided the dough in half and added 3/4 t. lemon extract to half (I’ll use 1 t. next time) and added 3/4 c. chopped dried cherries to the other half. Using a 1.5″ diameter scoop I got 46 cookies. I baked them for 10 minutes and they were a little too crunchy so I’ll bake them for 9.5 minutes next time. I was happy to see they didn’t have a strong butter flavor. I think I’ll add a little more vanilla next time. The cherry version cookies were a little thicker than the lemon ones.
Good morning Terri! I’m so happy you made the sugar cookies, they are my absolute favorite recipe!
I don’t like the taste, (nasty) it taste like flour and baking powder, not like a real sugar cookie, but the cookie dough tasted better and I like the feel, and how pretty they came out.
Mandy I’m sorry this wasn’t to your liking.
