Sugar Crinkle Cookies, A Little Bite of Sweetness!

How can you resist such a tiny bit of sweet, buttery goodness? Maybe just one more...
After my son taste tested a few of these, I packaged them up to go to a bake sale.
These little gems are tender inside and slightly crisp on the outside with a gentle lemon flavor. Great for a quick dunk in a glass of cold milk or beside a cup of tea.
Makes approximately 5 dozen.
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon lemon extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup sugar for rolling them, maybe a little more
Beat the butter and 1 1/2 cups sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs and flavorings. Beat until blended.
Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; gradually add to the butter mixture, beating well.
Cover and chill dough for at least 2 hours, this will make it much easier to roll into balls, less stuck on your hands.
Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Roll balls in sugar.

Place balls on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake at 350F. for 8-9 minutes or until slightly golden on edges toward bottom.

Allow to rest on sheets for 2 minutes then remove to cooling racks, this way they are less apt to break.
I really need some better lighting in my kitchen...
