2 hrs 30 mins
2 hrs 40 mins
2 large egg yolks, room temperature
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
2 2/3 cups powdered sugar, sifted
Beat butter, granulated sugar and vanilla in mixer bowl on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
Beat on low speed until blended.
Gradually add flour and salt, beating just until blended.
Refrigerate dough, wrapped in plastic wrap, at least 2 hours or up to 2 days.
Work with half of the dough at a time, keeping remaining dough refrigerated.
Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness.
Cut out cookie shapes using cookie cutters.
Place 1 inch apart on parchment paper-lined or ungreased baking sheets.
Bake until edges are lightly browned, 8 to 10 minutes.
Cool on baking sheets 1 minute.
For Icing: Combine powdered sugar, meringue powder, butter and water in mixer bowl. Beat on high speed until light and fluffy, 6 to 8 minutes. If icing is too thick, thin with small amounts of additional water.
