2 eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract. Empty the contents
of the jar into a large bowl. Cut in 1 cup of softened butter until the mixture is

lemon extract until light and fluffy. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix until
well blended. Cover bowl and chill for 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175
