Replacements for almond extract?

windycity | Jan 31, 2007 04:39 PM

I am going to make the NYTimes' Lemon Confit Shortbread Tart ( with meyer lemons this weekend for a friend with nut allergies, but the crust calls for 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon almond extract, or to taste.

I doubt that taking out that miniscule amount of liquid will significantly change the texture of the crust but just to be sure, I want to find an extract replacement. Am currently thinking vanilla or coconut. Any other thoughts - what works well with lemon?
