ALL BUTTER SUGAR COOKIES WITH CREAM CHEESE FROSTING RECIPE

The only change I made was to use the whole package of cream cheese-8 oz- and a 1/4 cup less powdered sugar because I like the cream cheese flavor.Excellent recipe!! Also, omit the vanilla and add 2t maple flavoring if you want something different.

This was a great tasting frosting that was quick and easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly, however I found that the finished product was very runny. I used it to top and on the first couple it ran all down the sides. I added almost twice the amount of confectioners sugar as was stated in the recipe and eventually ended up with a nice thick, sticky frosting. 

Simply marvelous, and as mentioned in other post just a change in the extract could enhance to suit your dessert needs. I love this recipe.


ALL BUTTER SUGAR COOKIES WITH CREAM CHEESE FROSTING RECIPE


INGREDIENTS

1 cup (226 grams) Finlandia unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup (200 grams) sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 3/4 cups (330 grams) all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (62 grams) cornstarch
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

Cream cheese frosting:
1/2 cup (114 grams) Finlandia unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup (114 grams) cream cheese, room temperature
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups (240 grams) powdered sugar

INSTRUCTIONS
  • In a mixing bowl add the butter and sugar. With the paddle attachment on, beat on low speed until light and creamy, about 3 minutes.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract and the two eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch and baking powder. Gently fold the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Beat until just combined.
  • Remove the cookie dough from the mixing bowl and, with floured hands, shape it into two 2-inches thick log. I use wax paper to roll the dough in, is not as sticky as plastic wrap or parchment paper. Chill the dough overnight. (when i'm in a rush, I place the cookie dough in the freezer for 2-3 hours)
  • Slice the cookie dough into 1/4 - 1/3 inch thickness and place on two baking sheets.
  • Heat the oven to 350F. Bake the cookie for 10-13 minutes until the edges are barely golden brown and the center is set.
  • Remove the baking sheets from the oven, let the cookies cool for 1-2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Cream Cheese Frosting
  • In a mixing bowl, add the cream cheese and butter. With the paddle attachment on, beat on low sped until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract and gently beat in the powdered sugar.
  • Once all the sugar is added, increase the mixer’s speed to medium-high and beat for 2 more minutes.
  • With a small spatula, spread a little frosting over each cookie.
  • Finish with colorful sprinkles.
