Lemon Snaps

When i was a young girl, my grandmother made me these cookies when I had come home from playing in the woods near our house. She is no longer with us, but I thought I would share the recipe. 

1 ⅛ cup sugar
2 tsp hot water
½ tsp baking soda
⅔ cup butter
1 ⅛ cup flour
1 tsp lemon extract

You can make lemon extract yourself by putting lemon peel into a clean jar and filling it with vodka, then leaving it in a dark place. 

Roll the dough thin, like pie crust--about ⅛ inch. Bake on un-greased tins, at 420°, until golden brown around the edges. 5-6 minutes should complete them.
