- Beat together butter and sugar with an electric mixture until fluffy. Add egg, lemon extract, lemon zest and thyme. Beat to combine.
- Whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside.
- Slowly add flour mixture to butter mixture in thirds, until well combined. Form dough into a ball, and flatten into a disc. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
- Roll out dough on a well-floured surface to about ¼ " (6mm). Cut out dough with a 3” (7.6cm) cookie cutter and transfer to a cookie sheet lined with parchment.
