How to make it

  • Cookies
  • Sift the first three ingredients together. Set aside.
  • Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and milk and beat until combined.
  • Put mixer on low and add flour mixture until combined.
  • Divide dough in half and wrap in waxed paper and refridgerate for 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 375*
  • Sprinkle surface with icing sugar (you will need a lot more icing sugar than you would use flour, as it gets absorbed into the dough more). Remove one wrapped pack of dough at a time, sprinkle rolling pin with icing sugar and roll the dough to 1/4 inch thick. Move the dough around to make sure it doesn't stick to the surface.
  • Cut out shapes and place on non-stick baking sheet (or greased baking sheet or parchment paper).
  • Bake for 7-9 minutes, or until cookies are just beginning to turn brown around the edges, rotating the cookie sheet half way through. Cool on a rack.
  • Royal Icing
  • Beat egg whites and lemon juice until whipped. Add icing sugar until combined and smooth.
  • (When I made this icing, I made it a day ahead of time and stored it in the fridge. When I went to use it, it was too hard to spread, so I added a tiny bit of milk until it was a nice spreadable consistency. I think even when I make it next time, I will still add a bit of milk. It just makes it a little smoother and thinner.)
