Valentine's Cookies

My brother  asked me to do something for our cousin and I think I’ll be giving these to my friends!!

For the cookies:
2 ½ cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
2 eggs
1 cup butter
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup of confectionar’s sugar
1 lemon (juice)
colouring (optional)

You can substitute lemon with milk but I think lemon is so much better! The cookie is not too sweet and like this it's sweet 'n sour at the same time!

Mix the flour and baking powder, set aside.
In a large bowl, mix butter, vanilla and sugar togather until smooth, then add the eggs one at a time.
Add the flour mixture a little at a time.

Divide it in three pieces and wrap them in pelicule. Let them rest in the fridge for 2 hours or overnight (I put them in the freezer for 30 mins)
Roll and cut to whatever you feel like. Oven them for 8 /10 mins (until golden)
For the frosting just combine the ingredients. If i tis to liquid add sugar, if it’s too pasty add lemon juice or milk. (Frosting the cookies can be very messy and time consuming but I think they were worth it :D )
