I made these for a get together today and they were very nice.
Lemon Drop Cookies
3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
2 tablespoons grated lemon peel
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups lemon chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg.
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar; beat in lemon extract and peel. Beat in eggs until well blended. Mix in dry ingredients. Stir in lemon chips` and chopped walnuts. Drop cookie dough by teaspoons onto ungreased baking sheet; bake at 350° for about 12 minutes.
Makes about 5 to 6 dozen lemon drop cookies

If you can't find the lemon chips, vanilla chips will work too.

I have a lemon tree, too, but it only makes pretty flowers. No lemons are forming.
