Ingredients

Cookies

3/4 cup butter, softened

1 cup sugar

2 egg yolks

1 whole egg

Filling

1/4 cup butter, softened

2-1/2 cups powdered sugar

1-1/2 teaspoons Spice Islands® Pure Lemon Extract

Instructions

Preheat oven to 300ºF.

Cream butter, sugar, eggs, and lemon extract until light and fluffy, using an electric mixer. Add flour and baking soda, mixing just until combined.   Stir in poppy seeds, coriander and lemon peel.

Drop by leveled teaspoons, 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until very lightly browned around edges. Cool.

RECIPE NOTE: In a hurry? These cookies are also delicious without the filling!
