In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment whip butter, shortening and sugar until pale and fluffy. Mix in egg, then mix in egg white, vanilla, lemon juice and food coloring. With mixer set on low speed, slowly add in dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and chill 2 hours. Preheat oven to 375 degrees during last 10 minutes of chilling.
  • Shape dough into about 3 Tbsp balls and transfer to Silpat lined baking sheets. Evenly flatten balls with greased hands to about 1/2-inch. Bake in preheated oven 9 - 11 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool on baking sheet 2 minutes then transfer to a wire rack. Cool completely then frost with cream cheese frosting.
  • For the frosting:
