Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Spray bottom and up sides of a 6 cup popover pan with baking spray. Set aside.
In medium bowl, whisk together 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon salt; set aside.
In large bowl of electric mixer on medium speed, beat 1/2 cup plus 5 tablespoons butter until creamy, approximately 2 minutes. Add in 1 cup sugar, and beat until light and fluffy, approximately 5 minutes. Gradually add in beaten eggs, 2 teaspoons lemon extract, and 1 teaspoon lemon zest. Reduce speed to low, and slowly beat in flour mixture until incorporated. Spoon batter evenly into prepared popover pan. Bake for approximately 27 minutes. Cool

Place a strainer over a medium bowl, pour in mixture, and with wooden spoon, press liquid through, and discard seeds. Quickly whisk in 1 teaspoon unflavored gelatin, and let set 5-10 minutes.
