What to do with lemon extract?

I have a bottle of lemon extract that I've had for a year but have yet to use. Does anyone have any favorite recipes that use lemon extract that I can try?

  1. Alton Brown's angel food cake recipe.

    1. No recipes off the top of my head but it can be used in cakes, cookies, pie fillings, i.e custard, creme, etc.; creme brulee, sauces, etc. Add a drop in hollandaise

      1. My favorite sugar cookie recipe uses a tiny bit of lemon extract. Also used in, well, all lemon baking - as pp said cakes, cookies, pies, etc. Depends on what you like I guess.


          7-up cake uses 2 tablespoons of lemon extract. It's a bundt cake that is a lemony pound cake. I make it alot, so I buy lemon extract by the huge bottle from Penzeys. I never make the glaze.

          1. Pizelles, but I like them with a combo of anise and lemon extracts.
