  1. 1 cup butter, softened
  2. 1 cup heavy cream, at room temperature
  3. 1 cup sugar
  4. 2 teaspoons vanilla
  5. 2 eggs, at room temperature
  6. 4 teaspoons baking powder
  7. 4 cups flour

  1. 1 cup butter, at room temperature
  2. 8 cups powdered sugar
  3. 1/2 cup milk, at room temperature
  4. 1 teaspoon vanilla
  5. 1/4 teaspoon almond extract, optional
  6. food coloring, optional
  7. sprinkles, optional


  1. Cream the butter until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the heavy cream, sugar, vanilla & eggs. Mix until combined. Add the baking powder and flour and mix well.
  2. Shape the dough into a circle/ball & wrap in saran wrap. Cool in the fridge overnight or for several hours.
  3. Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Roll out the dough on a floured surface. (I prefer them nice & thick about 1/2″ but anywhere between 1/4″ -1/2″ is good.) Use a 3″- 3 1/2″ circle cookie cutter. Place circles on a parchment lined cookie sheet. (These cookies spread a little while baking, so they don’t do well when cut into other shapes)
  4. Bake for 8-10 minutes (depending on the size of your circle) or until bottoms are a very light brown. Check at 8 minutes & DO NOT overcook or they will be dry. Take them out right when they are done and don’t look wet on top.

  1. Cream the butter until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. 
  2. Add 4 cups of the powdered sugar, the milk, vanilla & almond extract. 
  3. Beat till smooth and creamy. Add the remaining sugar, one cup at a time until desired consistency. Add food coloring if desired.
  4. You can pipe the frosting on the cookies or use a knife.
  5.  I piped it on, then smoothed the top with a knife.

NOTES: If you don’t want to roll out the dough and use a round cookie cutter, you can roll the chilled dough into balls and press down with your fingers. They won’t be a perfect circle, but it does cut out the rolling step and covered in frosting, nobody will notice. If you do this, bake for less time as they will be a smaller circle. (See picture below for comparison)
