 Ingredients List

  • 1 1/2 c Butter or margarine
  • 1 c Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 ts Vanilla
  • 2 ts Lemon extract
  • 1 tb Lemon zest
  • Yellow food coloring
  • 4 c Flour, sifted
  • 1 ts Baking powder


1 c Sugar, confectioners
2 tb Milk
1 ts Lemon extract
Yellow food coloring

Poppy seeds

Thoroughly cream butter or margarine and sugar. Add egg, vanilla, lemon
extract and lemon zest; beat well.

Sift together flour and baking powder; add gradually to creamed mixture,
mixing to a smooth dough. Force dough through cooky press, using a star or
swirl shape, onto ungreased baking sheet.

Bake in hot oven, 400 degrees 8 to 10 minutes. Cool.

Icing: Sift the powdered sugar and add the lemon extract. Add the milk a
little at a time. You want the result to be a thin frosting. Add yellow
food coloring and stir until blended. You want the color of the frosting to
be paler than the color of the cookies.

When the cookies are completely cool, put the frosting into a small ziploc
bag. Cut a small hole in one corner, and squeeze the bag to force the thin
frosting out the hole. Starting in the center of each cookie, make a sprial
of frosting going out toward the edges of the cookie. Sprinkle with poppy
seeds, and let the icing set.
