Recipe calls for 1/2 tbs almond extract for cut out cookies, can I leave out the almond extract, or is there another substitute for almond ex

I do not have almond extract, will the recipe still turn out?

Lemon zest would be nice instead. I'd use the zest of one lemon, very finely chopped or grated. ;o)

It's just for flavoring. You can always use a different extract (i.e. vanilla) if you like.
