Ingredients

  • 3

    ¼ cups flour

  • 1

    tsp. baking powder

  • ½ tsp. salt

  • ¾ cup butter

  • 1

    cup sugar

  • 2

    eggs

  • 1

    tsp. vanilla

  • ICING:

  • 2

    egg whites

  • 1

    tsp. lemon juice

  • 3

    ½ cups icing sugar

Directions

Sift flour, baking powder and salt in mixing bowl. Beat butter with sugar until light and fluffy in a large bowl. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in flour mixture, one third at a time, blending well to make a stiff dough. Chill several hours or overnight until firm enough to roll. Roll out dough one quarter at a time, 1/8” thick on a lightly floured surface. Cut into desired shapes. Place 1 inch apart on cookie sheets. Bake in 350ºF oven for 10 minutes or until firm and lightly golden. Remove from sheets and cool on racks. Cool completely before icing. ICING: Beat egg whites and lemon juice until foamy in medium-sized bowl. Slowly beat in sugar, until icing stands in firm peaks and is stiff enough to hold a sharp line when cut through with a knife.
