Ingredients

2 cups butter, softened
1 1/3 cups sugar
2 eggs, beaten
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
5 cups all-purpose flour
Frosting:
4 1/2 cups powdered sugar
6 tablespoons butter, melted
6 tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Optional: few drops food coloring

Preparation

Blend 2 cups butter and sugar together; stir in eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla. Add flour; mix until well blended. Shape into a ball; cover and chill for 4 hours to overnight. Roll out dough 1/4-inch thick on a lightly floured surface; cut out with cookie cutters as desired. Arrange cookies on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes, until golden; cool.

To make Frosting: Combine powdered sugar, milk, remaining butter (melted), remaining vanilla, lemon juice and food coloring, if using, in a medium bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Frost cookies when cool.
