Holiday Baking: Lemon Pie Cookies

These cookies are amazing. They taste exactly like lemon pie and they're best fresh out of the oven. Enjoy the recipe. 

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg
1 tsp lemon extract
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 powdered sugar

1. Cream butter and sugar together until fluffy. Add in vanilla, lemon extract, and egg. Stir in all dry ingredients. Scrape sides of the bowl and mix again. Chill dough for two hours.
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
3. Shape dough into 1 1/2 inch balls. Roll into powdered sugar. Place on greased baking sheets and bake for 9-11 minutes, or until cookies are no longer shiny. Cool 3 minutes in the pan and then transfer to a wire rack.
