  1. Sift the icing sugar, and put about half in a bowl. Put the egg whites and lemon juice in the bowl and mix everything with a mixer.

  2. Gradually add the remaining icing sugar. The mass must be so strong that you can make a fine line without it runs.

  3. Fill approx. 1/2 tbsp icing into a small piping bag and set aside. Dye the rest in brown and fill in about 2 tbsp. also in a small piping bag.

  4. Dilute the remaining icing with water. It should so liquit that it runs flat when you put it on a cookie. Cover the icinig with a damp cloth and set aside.

  5. Make a outside line on the cookie with the brown icing in the piping bag, so that the liquit icing does not run down. Then fill the cookie with the brown liquit icing and leave to dry for about 1-2 hours.

  6. Make the decoration with the icings and allow to dry.
