Lemon Drop Cookies

Thanks to my friend Camie for getting me her mom's AMAZING cookie recipe! I've made them for events twice in the last week and both times they were a huge hit. I've had many requests for the recipe, so I had to share it on my blog. I hope you love them as much as everyone else has!

1 cup butter
½ cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tsp lemon extract
2 ½ cup flour

Mix and roll dough into cylinder. Cut dough to create flat, round circles. Bake at 350 degrees for about 9-12 minutes or until the edges become golden. Cool before frosting.

Frosting:
1/4 cup butter
1 Tablespoon milk
1 1/2 Tablespoon lemon Juice
Powdered sugar

Beat butter, milk and lemon juice. Add powdered sugar until desired consistency is reached. Frosting can be spread on cookies or piped on to make them look a little more fancy.
