Preheat oven to 350° F. Cookies: mix together sugar and shortening. Add eggs and lemon extract, beat well. Add flour, baking powder, salt and lemon zest. Mix well. Dough should be soft and sticky. Drop small round cookies on a slightly greased cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Remove cookies and allow to cool completely on a wire rack. Whisk all frosting ingredients in small bowl. Dip cookies upside down in the frosting. Set on cookie tray lined with wax paper. Sprinkle colored dots on the cookies immediately after dipping.
