INGREDIENTS USED IN THE RECIPE
BUTTER: This should be at room temperature. When the butter is soft, it is easily combined with the powdered / icing sugar.
POWDERED / ICING / CONFECTIONERS SUGAR: This sugar incorporates quickly and well with the butter. If you are going to use granulated sugar, it will take longer to mix into the butter. Overmixing is avoided when powdered sugar is used, creating a softer, lighter bake.
LEMON JUICE AND ZEST: A ¼ cup / 65 ml of lemon juice
