Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least an hour (or overnight).
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Roll out the dough on a floured surface ¼ to ½ inch thick. Cut into shapes with any cookie cutter. Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes in a preheated oven. Cool completely.
  4. While the cookies cool, let’s make the royal icing - in a large bowl combine eggs whites and vanilla extract until frothy.
  5. Add the confectioners’ sugar and mix until sugar is incorporated and mixture forms stiff, glossy peaks. This should take approximately 5 to 7 minutes at a high speed on a standard mixer.
  6. Add food colouring and transfer icing to a piping bag and pipe as desired.
