INSTRUCTIONS

1. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. With an electric mixer at medium speed, beat the margarine and salt until creamy. Add the egg substitute, lemon rind and lemon extract; beat until blended. With the mixer at low speed, stir in the flour mixture, until all the flour is just moistened. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to a 6-inch disk; refigerate at least 30 minutes.

 

2. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Sray 2 nonstick baking sheets with nonstick spray.

 

3. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough 1/8-inch thick. Using a 3-inch heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut out cookies, gathering and re-rolling the scraps of dough to make 36 cookies. With a metal spatula, carefully place cookies apart on the baking sheets. Bake until the cookies are set but not browned, about 10 minutes. Cool the cookies on the baking sheet on a rack about 1 minute; remove from the baking sheet and cool completely on the rack.
