Below, in the comments, you'll find the conversion for those of us in America.Ingredients
:250 g plain wheat flour
½ teaspoonful baking powder (sodium hydrogen carbonate; e.g. Backin by Dr. Oetker)
100 g sugar
1 sachet vanilla sugar
2 sachets grated lemon rind (or homemade)
150 g butter (at room temperature. Do not melt.)
For the icing:
200 g icing sugar
3 spoonful lemon juice
How to proceed:
- Mix ingredients to a dough, roll it, cut out cookies (hearts, stars, fir-trees, bells – I prefer hearts), place the cookies on the baking plate lined with baking paper.
- Bake at good heat (200 degrees Celsius), don’t burn the cookies.
- Move the cookies together with the paper on a grid or the kitchen table, let them cool.
- Make the icing in a cereal-bowl: just add lemon juice to the icing sugar, little by little, till you obtain a thick smooth paste. Ice the cookies by using a brush or knife. Let them dry. Store them in a cookie tin.
- Enjoy them – not only at Christmas time.

NOTE: 200 degrees Celsius is 390 degrees Fahrenheit.
