Crisp Sugar Cookies

2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon lemon extract

Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cream together the butter and sugar and mix into the egg. Add the dry ingredients alternately with the milk and lemon extract and blend. Chill the dough overnight. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Roll the dough, on a floured pastry cloth, to a thickness of five-eighths of an inch. Press out the desired shapes and cut apart with a floured knife. Transfer to greased cookie sheets and bake seven to ten minutes.
