Directions

The Cookies 1 Mix thoroughly butter, powdered sugar, egg, and lemon extract. Blend in baking soda, cream of tartar, and flour. Cover and chill for 2 to 3 hours. 2 Heat oven to 375 degrees. 3 Divide the dough in half, and roll each half of dough 3/16" inch thick on a lightly floured or cloth-covered board. 4 Cut into desired shapes and place on a lightly greased baking sheet. 5 Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until light brown on the edges. The Lemon Buttercream Frosting 1 In a food processor, process the powdered sugar and lemon zest until the zest in evenly incorporated, about 2 minutes. 2 Add the butter, and process until very well blended -- and smooth. Add 1 1/2 tsps lemon juice and food coloring, if using, and process till smooth and well blended. If necessary, add a bit more powdered sugar to stiffen the frosting or a bit more lemon juice to thin it so that is of spreading consistancy. 3 Spread the frosting onto the cookies, apply the candy sprinkles. Let stand until the frosting completely sets -- at least 1 hour. Store in a single layer or layered with wax paper in an airtight container in a cool place for up to 2 days. Refrigerate for up to 1 week, or freeze for up to 2 months.
