Lemon Shortbread Cookies

1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (170 degrees C).

In a medium bowl, beat butter or margarine and brown sugar with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in lemon zest, lemon extract, and vanilla.

Add flour and salt to butter/sugar mixture and blend well. With a rolling pin on a lightly floured surface, roll out dough 1/4 inch thick. Cut out cookies using a 2 inch round cutter and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Reroll scraps.

Bake 20 to 25 minutes, until cookies are pale golden, not brown. Let stand 2 minutes. Remove to a rack and let cool completely.

Makes 20 cookies
