250 g Soft butter
250 g Sugar
500 g Flour (#405)
½ Sachet of backing powder
Sugar sprinkles and chopped nuts for decoration
Cookie cutter forms
Mix the butter, sugar and eggs. Mix the flour and the backing powder and gradually stir with the butter, sugar and eggs. Put the dough aside and let it rest a couple of hours if possible. This is not necessary, though.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface, cut out the cookies and place them on a baking tray, with baking paper. Bake at about 200 ° for 5 - 8 minutes until the edges are slightly brown. The cookies are still a bit soft, but when cooling down they will become hard.
Stir the lemon juice and powdered sugar until you get a thick sugar icing. Decorate the cookies by attaching sugar sprinkles, chopped nuts or melted chocolate coating.
