1/2 tsp. lemon zest (optional)
2 1/2 cups flour

Preheat oven to 425F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. Add egg yolks, vanilla and lemon zest, then stir in remaining ingredients. Roll out on a lightly floured board to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into desired shapes and place on prepared baking sheets. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until cookies are set but not browned. Transfer to racks to cool before decorating.

Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
