2 egg yolks
 Mix powder sugar with a few drops of lemon juice, and 1 drop food coloring of whatever color you want to decorate with, soft colors would be fine in this case, yellow, orange, pink, green, purple and orange, your sugar icing is ready.
Stir flour, salt and sugar in medium size bowl

 Cut in butter until mixture resembles fine bread crumbs.
Add egg yolks and mix to form a soft dough.
Roll out dough on a floured surface, using a Easter egg cookie cutter
