  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray.  

  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, oil, milk, salt,  lemon extract, and the egg. Roll dough into 1/2-inch balls and place on prepared baking sheets.

  4. In a medium bowl, combine glaze ingredients and stir until smooth.  

  5. Dip tops of cookies in glaze and place on wire rack.


  • Use assorted sprinkles and decorating sugar to decorate your cookies. Just be sure to do it quickly, before the glaze hardens!

  • If you want to decorate your cookies with multiple colors, separate glaze into smaller bowls and mix in food colors one drop at a time, until desired colors are reached.
