Ingredients & Supplies

Prep Time: 1 hour
Bake Time: 15 Minutes
Yields: 22 emoji cookies

  • 3/4 teaspoon ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) salted butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 4 large egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Lemon zest
  • Yellow, black, red, white pre-made icing
  • 4 oz of yellow, black, red, white fondant (optional)
  • Parchment paper
  • Baking sheet
  • 2"-3" round cookie cutter or drinking glass
  • Measuring cup


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F degrees.
  2. Combine flour, ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda, and baking powder in a medium bowl.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix butter and sugar until creamy. You can mix by hand or dust off the hand mixer to speed up the process.
  4. Add egg yolks, vanilla extract, lemon zest, and lemon juice and mix until combined.
  5. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients.
  6. Dust a light coat of flour on your work surface, then divide the dough in half and knead. Wrap each half in plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or until the dough is firm.
  7. Remove plastic wrap and place one half of the dough on a piece of parchment paper about the size of your baking sheet. Place another sheet of parchment on top of the dough. Then roll out with a rolling pin until dough is about 1/4" thick. Repeat with the other half.
  8. With cookie cutter or drinking glass, cut out cookies and place on parchment-lined baking sheets about 1 1/2" apart.
  9. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until edges of cookies are light brown. Let cool.
  10. Now it’s time to decorate. First, create a yellow base — you can use either icing or fondant to form a thin layer. Let dry, then use a combination of colorful icing and/or fondant to mold and draw your favorite emoji faces.
