    1       c            Sugar, confectioners
    2       tb           Milk
    1       t            Lemon extract
                         Yellow food coloring
                         -----TOPPING-----
                         Poppy seeds
 
   Thoroughly cream butter or margarine and sugar. Add
   egg, vanilla, lemon extract and lemon zest; beat well.
   
   Sift together flour and baking powder; add gradually
   to creamed mixture, mixing to a smooth dough. Force
   dough through cooky press, using a star or swirl
   shape, onto ungreased baking sheet.
   
   Bake in hot oven, 400 degrees 8 to 10 minutes. Cool.
   
   Icing:  Sift the powdered sugar and add the lemon
   extract. Add the milk a little at a time.  You want
   the result to be a thin frosting. Add yellow food
   coloring and stir until blended.  You want the color
   of the frosting to be paler than the color of the
   cookies.
   
   When the cookies are completely cool, put the frosting
   into a small ziploc bag. Cut a small hole in one
   corner, and squeeze the bag to force the thin frosting
   out the hole. Starting in the center of each cookie,
   make a sprial of frosting going out toward the edges
   of the cookie. Sprinkle with poppy seeds, and let the
   icing set.
