    2      cups          butter or margarine -- softened
    2      cups          sugar
    3                    eggs
    2      teaspoons     vanilla
    1      teaspoon      lemon extract
    6      cups          flour
    1      teaspoon      baking soda
 
 Cut four 14"x12 pieces of waxed paper or plastic wrap; set aside. In a large
 bowl, cream butter or margarine and sugar. Beat in eggs, vanilla and lemon
 extract until light and fluffy. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients.
 Gradually stir flour mixture into egg mixture until blended.
 Divide dough into 4 pieces. Shape each piece into an 8 to 10 inch roll. Wrap
 rolls in waxed paper or plastic wrap. Place in a freezer container with a
 tight-fitting lid or wrap airtight in a piece of foil. Label and date. Store
 in freezer. Use within 6 months. 
 
 To make cookies:
 Slightly thaw dough. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease 2 large baking
 sheets. Cut dough into slices or chunks. Sprinkle slices lightly with sugar,
 if desired. Bake 8 to 10 minutes until edges start to brown. Remove cookies
 from baking sheets and cool on wire racks. 
 Can also roll out and cut with cookie cutters.
