Sugar Cookies
adapted from sweetapolita

3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp lemon extract

combine the flour and the salt in a bowl and whisk or sift. 
in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar for a few minutes, until light and fluffy. add the egg and beat well, scraping down the sides. then add the extracts. finally add the flour and salt and beat until combined and dough comes together. 
split dough in half and wrap each in plastic, pressing down into a disc. refrigerate for an hour. 
on a piece of parchment paper or on a lightly floured surface, roll out one disc of dough to about 1/4 inch thickness. slide the parchment onto a cutting board or cookie sheet and place back into the fridge for about 15 minutes.  repeat with the other disc of dough. take the first sheet of dough out and cut into whatever shape you'd like, in this case diamond and triangular meth fragment shapes. place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, about 2 inches apart from other cookies or edges. repeat until all the dough has been cut. place each cookie sheet in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. (this will help them keep their shape in the oven) preheat the oven to 350 degreesF. bake for 12-14 minutes, or until edges turn golden. cool sheets on wire racks for 10 minutes, then transfer cookies to wrack to finish cooling.
