Beat butter, sugar and lemon extract together until creamy.
Add flour, beating on low speed until mixed.
Divide dough into thirds.
Press each third into a 2/3″ thick disk using parchment paper or plastic wrap.
Chill for 30 minutes.
Roll each third to 1/8″ thick on a floured surface.
Cut out shapes. Re-roll remaining dough to get more cookies! You can add sprinkles before baking, if desired.
Place on an uncreased baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
Decorate however you’d like, or not at all!
