How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine butter and sugar. Add eggs and combine. Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl and add it slowly to the butter mixture, mixing until blended.
Place dough on parchment paper, and refrigerate for one hour.
Once chilled, roll out cookie dough onto a floured surface, and cut into shapes with a flamingo cookie cutter. Place on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, and bake for 8-10 minutes.
While cookies bake, make a batch of citrus royal icing by combining confectioners' sugar, meringue powder, water, lemon juice, and pink food coloring.
Decorate the cooled cookies with royal icing. We use clear squeeze bottles, but piping bags or a paint brush also work well.
For the flamingo wings, melt white chocolate with a drop of pink food coloring in the microwave for 90 seconds. With a paintbrush, paint strokes of melted chocolate on parchment paper. Let cool, and adhere to cookies with a dab of corn syrup.
