1 tsp vanilla
Dash of lemon juice
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups flour

Mix together butter and sugars. Add in eggs, vanilla, lemon juice. Mix flour, baking powder, salt together and gradually add into creamed mixture. Don't over stir. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour at least. 
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Generously flour a flat surface and the rolling pin. Scoop out half the dough and roll until about 1/4 inch thick. Cut into desired shapes and bake 6-8 minutes. Do not get them brown! Cool in pan for one minute. Remove to wire rack to cool completely. 
Frost and decorate.
