Lemon Tea Cookies

2 C. butter (or margarine) ($.50)
1 C. granulated sugar ($.20)
2 tsp. lemon extract ($.20)
1 tsp. butter extract ($.10)
3 tsp. lemon juice ($.05)
4 1/4 C. flour ($.25)
1 C. finely chopped almonds ($.75)
1 C. powdered sugar ($.20)


1. In a medium bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Stir in extract and juice. Add the flour and almonds, mix until blended. Cover and chill for 3 hours.

2. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

3. Shape dough into small (teaspoon-sized) balls. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove from pan to cool on wire racks. When cookies are cool enough to handle, roll in confectioners' sugar twice. Place cookies in an airtight container and hide the container from those who seek to devour your goodies.
