Step 1: Wash hands with soap and water.

Step 2: In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium speed, cream together butter and sugar until smooth; beat in eggs, lemon juice and lemon zest. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Wash hands after handling raw flour and eggs. Cover and chill dough for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Step 3: Preheat oven to 400°F.

Step 4: Roll out dough onto a lightly floured surface to ¼- to ½-inch thickness. If dough is too sticky, add some additional flour, a little at a time, until desired consistency is reached. Cut into desired shapes with cookie cutters.

Step 5: Place cookies 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets and bake for 6-8 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack before decorating.
