Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly butter two baking sheets.

2. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together with an electric mixer on high speed until light and fluffy. Add the egg yolk, lemon zest and lemon extract, and mix well.

3. Add the flour and salt, and blend on low speed until all the dry ingredients are moistened. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed, and blend to form a smooth, thick batter.

4. Drop heaping teaspoons of the dough, at least 2 inches apart, onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake, rotating the sheets once, until the cookies are very lightly colored around the edges, 12 to 15 minutes.

5. Remove the baking sheets from the oven and allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes; then transfer them to a wire cake rack to cool completely.
