The Amerikaner's are classic with white sugar frosting. (Sometimes half white half black) For your child's birthday party for example you can decorate them with gummy bears, m & m or colored sugar sprinkles. This recipe makes 6 large Amerikaner or 12 small ones (than reduce the dough portion for each Amerikaner to half).
First of all beat the margarine, sugar, vanilla sugar and eggs until frothy.
Combine flour with baking powder and add to the margarine-egg mixture.
Season with lemon extract to desired taste. Pre-heat oven to 390 F. Line a cookie sheet with baking parchment. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheet, 2 inch apart. They will double in size during baking. Bake for 13-15 min until light brown (do not overbake!). Meanwhile combine the confectioner's sugar and the lemon juice to make the frosting. Brush on the frosting while they are warm.
