What have I been doing besides slacking off on my blogging duties and being boring? I've been baking! Lots and lots of cookies...
2/3 Cup Butter
1 Cup Sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon Vanilla or Almond Extract
3 teaspoons Baking Powder
2 3/4 Cups Flour
Cream the butter and sugar in a mixer. Add the eggs, mix, then add the other ingredients.
Roll out the dough and use cookie cutters to make shapes. Cook at 375 for 7 to 8 minutes. It makes about 2 1/2 dozen.
For the icing it's simply a matter of mixing lemon juice and icing sugar together to the right consistency (liquidy without being runny)
