      Title: Traditional decorated christmas cookies
 Categories: Cookies, Desserts
      Yield: 48 Servings
    3/4 c  Butter, unsalted; softened
    1/2 c  Sugar
      1    Egg
      1 tb Lemon peel; finely grated
      1 ts Vanilla
    1/4 ts Salt
  2 1/4 c  Flour, all purpose; unsifted
      1 tb Water; (use 2 if req'd)

      3    Egg whites
      1 lb Sugar, powdered
      2 ts Water; (use 3 if req'd)
           Food colors, sprinkles, etc
  Beat together butter and sugar in small bowl with electric mixer until
  light and fluffy. Beat in egg, lemon peel, vanilla and salt.
  Gradually beat in flour until thoroughly incorporated. Add water, a
  few drops at a time, only until dough starts to come away from side
  of bowl. Wrap dough in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until firm, about 2
  Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly grease 4 cookie sheets. On lightly
  floured surface, roll out dough to 1/8" thickness. Cut out various
  shapes using cookie cutters or homemade cardboard patterns, or
  freehand. Reroll scraps and cut out. Make small holes with wooden
  pick if planning to hang cookies. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until
  beginning to brown around edges. Remove cookies to wire rack to cool
  before decorating.
  Prepare icing: Beat egg whites in small bowl with electric mixer until
  foamy. Slowly beat in the powdered sugar. Continue to beat until
  thick and creamy. Add just enough water to get a good spreading
  consistency. Tint with food coloring, if you wish. Spread evenly over
  cookies. Decorate with glitter, sprinkles, dragees and cinnamon red
  hots, if desired.
