These are both the most wonderful cookie recipes ever!!! They are perfect for gifts, parties or just to keep and eat (and eat, and eat). These cookies can be decorated with royal icing, sanding sugar, fondant or just about anyway you like to decorate cookies. I actually like them plain with no icing. They are perfect cookies to use cookie cutters with. This is such an easy recipe and it is perfect for children to work with. They have so much flavor that you really can’t go wrong. They are almost dummy proof. The only thing I will tell you is to follow the recipe regarding baking time. Don’t wait for them to get real golden on top because they will end up being very hard once they cool. Take them out when they are lightly golden. I made different color royal icing and had a blast decorating them. Your children can use their imagination and have a blast. Buy “jimmies” and let them decorate them with royal icing and cover with chocolate or multi-colored jimmies. Also, make the dough and freeze them. Bring them out, as you need them.

Instructions
  1. In a bowl, whisk together the 3 cups flour, baking powder, and salt. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. Add the egg and lemon zest and beat on low speed until the egg is completely incorporated. Beating on low speed, slowly add the flour mixture and continue to beat until almost incorporated. Add the buttermilk and lemon juice and beat on low speed until just incorporated, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  2. Press the dough into a rough rectangle, wrap tightly in plastic wrap, and refrigerate until firm, at least 1 hour or up to overnight. (The dough can be wrapped well and frozen for up to 1 month.)
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper. On a lightly floured work surface, using a floured rolling pin, roll out the chilled dough until about ¼ inch thick. Using cookie cutters or a paring knife, cut the cookies to the prepared sheets, spacing them 1 inch apart. Press the dough scraps together, roll out, and cut out additional shapes.
