Let’s be honest, sometimes a cookie is a vehicle for frosting. Blogger Bree Hester of bakedbree.com shares a favorite recipe that will make cookie and frosting lovers alike, very, very happy. I have yet to meet anyone that can resist a soft sugar cookie with a thick layer of almond-scented frosting. These cookies take sugar cookies to a whole new level and are so easy to make—a no-stress holiday cookie.

Ingredients

1
roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookies
4
oz (half of 8-oz package) cream cheese, softened
1/2
cup butter, softened
2
cups powdered sugar
2
tablespoons heavy whipping cream
1/2
teaspoon almond extract
Food color, if desired
Assorted sprinkles, if desired

Steps

  • 1 Cut dough evenly into 8 slices. On ungreased cookie sheet, place slices 2 inches apart. Bake and cool cookies as directed on wrapper.
  • 2 In medium bowl, beat cream cheese and butter with electric mixer on low speed until smooth. Gradually beat in powdered sugar, 1 cup at a time, until smooth. Add whipping cream; beat 5 minutes or until very light and fluffy. Stir in desired amount of food coloring.
