2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 tablespoon grated lemon rind
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, divided
1 tablespoon lemon extract
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
3 large eggs
2/3 cup powdered sugar
Combine flour, sugar, and baking powder in a large bowl. Combine rind, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, extract, oil, and eggs, and add to flour mixture, stirring until well-blended (dough will be dry and crumbly). Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface; knead lightly 7 to 8 times.
Bake at 350\u00b0F for 30 minutes. Remove the rolls from baking sheet; cool for 10 minutes on a
wire rack. Cut each roll diagonally into 15 (1/2-inch) slices. Place the slices, cut sides down,
on baking sheet. Reduce oven temperature to 325\u00b0F; bake for 10 minutes. Turn cookies over;
bake an additional 10 minutes (the cookies will be slightly soft in center but will harden as
they cool). Remove from baking sheet, and cool completely on wire rack.

Comments: I added about 1 teaspoon of cinnamon also. These turned out a bit soft for me,
but are a nice accompaniment to coffee or tea.
