Step 1

Combine all ingredients except flour; beat with mixer until well blended. Beat in flour.

Divide dough in half; wrap in plastic; chill at least 1 hour.

On well-floured surface, knead one dough portion into a smooth ball. Roll dough to 1/8-inch. Cut into shapes. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased baking sheets.

Bake in preheated 375 F oven 7 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned at edges. Cool. Repeat with remaining dough. Decorate with Lemon Glaze. Store tightly covered.

Top with edible decorations as desired. (Silver dragees!!!)

Lemon Glaze: With mixer, beat confectioners' sugar and ReaLemon. (Add additional amounts ReaLemon for a thinner consistency if desired). Divide glaze and tint with food colorings. Makes 1 1/3 cups.
