Moravian Tea Cakes

One thing that I like to do with my grandkids and when my own children were growing up was to introduce them to different taste around the world. These European based cookies are perfect for Christmas time. Enjoy

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg


Cream butter in a large mixing bowl; gradually add sugar, beating well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla and lemon extract.
Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg in a medium mixing bowl. Gradually add to creamed mixture, stirring well after each addition.
Roll dough to 1/8-inch thickness on a heavily floured surface; cut dough with assorted cookie cutters. Place cookies 2 inches apart on lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350° for 8 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets, and cool on wire racks.
