Lemon extract or oil

maisonbistro | Nov 10, 2009 10:45 AM

Okay, so I want to make some Italian lemon cookies - puffy ones with the icing sugar/lemon glaze on them. Go to the grocery store to buy some lemon extract, and pick up a bottle. Club house PURE lemon extract. Let me repeat, PURE lemon extract. Anyone want to guess what the ingredients are??

Propylene glycol, water, alcohol, flavour and colour.

Ummmm - should there not be something lemon in the ingredients besides the mysterious "flavour" ??

Is this the best I can do in Montreal (and no, lemon juice is not concentrated enough for these baking purposes - the amount of lemon juice needed would alter the batter).
