Grandma's Sugar Cookies

The first Grandma to bake these cookies was Mary Seba, the grandmother of Helen Seba Borgman. Married to Fritz Seba in 1868. These cookies were the favorite of son William. Helen would begin baking these favorite cookies of her father for sale at the Arrow Rock Craft Club in the mid 1960's. More than 35 years later she is still known as the "sugar cookie lady" of Arrow Rock. Her own children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren have also been the recipients of "thousands of sugar cookies!" To get that special "grandma size" cookie, Helen cut out the bottom of a 13 ounce mixed nut can and uses that as her cookie cutter. It seems the lemon extract is the key to this recipe.
