    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease or line baking sheets with parchment.
    2. Beat sugar and butter together in a bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Beat egg yolks, vanilla extract, lemon extract and orange extract together in another bowl. Add egg yolk mixture to butter mixture; beat well.
    3. Sift flour, bicarb and cream of tartar together in a bowl. Stir flour mixture into butter mixture until dough is well-blended. Roll dough into walnut-size balls and place on prepared baking sheets. Press dough balls to slightly flatten.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden around the edges and set, 8 to 10 minutes.

    Note

    If you don't have lemon and orange extracts, you can simply use lemon zest and orange zest instead. About a teaspoon of each would work well. Or, you can choose to omit the zest and extract all together for a more neutral flavour.
