Melt butter with sugar and molasses over boiling water and remove from heat.
Add dry ingredients and lemon extract and beat until smooth; let stand over hot water for 5 minutes.
Drop by half teaspoonfuls onto a greased baking sheet, 3 inches apart.
Bake in a moderately slow oven (325° F.) for 10 minutes.
Allow to cool for 2 or 3 minutes before removing from pan to cake rack with a spatula.
Makes about 5 dozen cookies.
The cookies are quite pliable when warm and can be shaped with the hands into cups or ruffles, or rolled into cones around the handle of a wooden mixing spoon.
