Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Use an electric mixer to beat the butter, sugar and egg in a large bowl until just combined. Add the flour and vanilla. Beat until the mixture just comes together. Turn onto a floured surface and gently knead until smooth. Cover with plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for 30 mins to chill.
Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface until 3mm thick. Cut egg shapes from the dough and place on the lined trays. Bake, swapping trays halfway through cooking, for 15 mins or until light golden. Cool completely.
To make the royal icing, whisk the egg white and lemon juice in a bowl. Gradually add the icing sugar, stirring after each addition until a thick paste forms.
Spread half the icing evenly over the biscuits and set aside to set. Use a little food colouring to tint the remaining royal icing pink. Place in a piping bag fitted with a 5mm plain nozzle. Pipe onto the biscuits to make paw prints. Set aside to set.
