1 c Crisco
1 c sugar
1/3 c milk
6 medium eggs, room temperature
1 oz pure lemon extract
6 t baking powder
4 1/2 c sifted flour

1 box confectioners sugar
2 t lemon extract

Cream together Crisco, sugar and milk. Lightly beat the eggs with a fork; add this to sugar mixture along with lemon extract. Add baking powder.

With hands, add the flour as needed to create a soft dough. Continue mixing until well blended. Take a piece of dough, a bit larger than walnut size and roll out about length of hand - form knot and place on baking sheet.

Bake at 375 for 12 minutes. Cookies should be slightly brown on the bottom and white on top when removed from the oven. Remove cookies to wire rack and let cool while you prepare glaze.

Glaze: In a medium size mixing bowl, mix together confectioners sugar and lemon extract. Pour a little bit of cold milk in at a time while stirring with wooden spoon until well blended. Glaze should be firm like frosting. If too wet, add more confectioners sugar until you get the right consistency. Frost cookies with butter knife and top with sprinkles, if desired.
