Lemon Drops

Today I made lemon drops. I know that they're supposed to be shaped like lemons, but I needed a mold for that. I boiled sugar and water until it reached the required temp, and then I poured the mixture onto a greased pan. I then added citrus acid, lemon extract, and yellow food coloring to it. I folded it a few times with a bench scraper, and then I separated it into two ropes. I cut the pieces into little squares, and covered them in powdered sugar. They tasted very sweet, and a tiny bit sour.
