Preheat oven to 350° F.   Grease and flour cookie sheet.

 

Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until foamy.    Beat in 1/4 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time; continue beating until stiff peaks form.

 

Beat egg yolks and 1/3 cup sugar in medium bowl on medium speed about 3 minutes or until thick and lemon colored.   Stir in flour, water, vanilla, baking powder, lemon extract and salt.   Fold egg yolk mixture into egg white mixture.
