Instructions
For the cookies
  1. Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. Place the sugar and butter in a stand alone mixer and beat until light and fluffy.
  3. Add in the egg, vanilla and milk and beat until combined.
  4. With the mixer on low, gradually add in the flour mixture.
  5. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  6. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  7. On a parchment-lined cookie sheet, roll dough out to 1/4” thick.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove.
  9. Immediately, use an egg shaped cookie cutter to cut shapes. Cutting the cookies after the dough has baked lets you get the exact cookie shape you want.
  10. Let them cool and then make the royal icing for dipping.
For the Marbled Royal Icing
  1. Whisk the egg white until frothy, gradually add in the sugar and mix until soft peaks form. Add in lemon and water and stir.
  2. Divide the mixture into 2 bowls, leaving one white. The other, use a toothpick and lightly add in the marble colors you want to use. Once the colors are in, pull the toothpick through to give it a marbled look. Do not mix, just lightly swirl the colors over the top.
  3. Dip the top of the egg cookie, flat down into the icing and lift up. It should have a marbled look! Wipe the sides of the cookie and let it dry on a cookie rack.
  4. Do the same to all of the cookies, adding some more white icing when you need to keep the colors from mixing too much.
For the Buttercream Frosting
  1. Beat the butter on high until light and fluffy.
  2. Add in the powdered sugar and beat until combined.
  3. Add in the milk and vanilla and beat until incorporated.
  4. Add the frosting into a piping bag and pipe on one of the egg cookies.
  5. Put two cookies together to make a sandwich!
