Vanilla Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing



Prepare the Sugar Cookies

1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
2. Cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Stop and scrape the mixer.
3. Slowly add the eggs and vanilla until combined. Stop and scrape the mixer.
4. Add the dried ingredients and mix until combined.
5. Once combined, roll out dough on a lightly floured surface. If the dough is too sticky, set in the fridge for 15 to 20 minutes.
6. Once rolled out about half an inch thick, use cutters to cut the cookies out and place on a Gefen Parchment-lined cookie sheet. If the dough is too soft after rolling out, put it on a cookie tray and let it set in the fridge.
7. Bake for seven minutes, rotate the pan, and then bake for another six to eight minutes.

Prepare the Royal Icing

1. While the cookies cool, make the royal icing.
2. With a paddle attachment or spoon mix the powdered sugar and egg whites together. Once combined, add the lemon juice and mix well. Stir in food coloring. Thin out the desired consistency with water, if needed.
