  1. 2 cups butter, softened
  2. 2 cups sugar
  3. 3 Eggland's Best Eggs
  4. 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel
  5. 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  6. 6 cups all-purpose flour
  7. 1 teaspoon baking soda
  1. 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  2. 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  3. 1/4 cup milk
  4. Green food coloring
  5. Red-hot candies
  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in lemon peel and vanilla. Combine flour and baking soda; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Shape into three 10-in. rolls; wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm.
  2. Unwrap and cut into 1/4-in. slices. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 10-15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the confectioners' sugar, butter, milk and food coloring until smooth; transfer to a resealable plastic bag; drizzle over cookies in the shape of a Christmas tree. Place one red-hot at the top of each tree. Yield: about 9-1/2 dozen.
