Creamy Buttery Sugar Cookie Frosting

This year I signed up to bring 2 dozen cookies (NOTE I did say 2) to a school function for Valentines Day.  Well I ended up making about 12 dozen!! It happened to be a day that I was super tired and running on empty.  I totally couldn't remember making that many until the job was completed and I took a  count!! Anyway this is my new favorite frosting recipe!! It is delicious and is perfectly paired with Soft & Chewy Sugar Cookies.  The cookies were gone in no time and everyone loved them!
Creamy Buttery Sugar Cookie Frosting
adapted from Authentic Suburban Gourmet
1 cup butter, softened
2 oz cream cheese, softened
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 Cups powdered sugar (may need a bit more)
1-3 Tablespoons milk

pinch of salt
Several drops food coloring 

Cream together the butter,cream cheese,vanilla and pinch of salt . Slowly beat in the powdered sugar. Once smooth and creamy, add in the milk, 1 tablespoon at a time until the desired spreading consistency is achieved. If you feel it is too runny add some more powdered sugar.  If desired, add food coloring and beat until combined.

Spread on your cookies and decorate with sprinkles or colored sugar!
*The original recipe called for cream instead of milk.  I never have cream on hand.  The milk worked well.


  1. These cookies are beautiful. No wonder they are all gone so quickly. Love the way you decorate these cookies on top. :) Very festive.

  2. Sounds like a great frosting Tiffanee and the cookies look yummy:@)

  3. 12 dozen cookies??? Holy smokes! That's so many. I would have taken some off your hands for you =o) They look wonderful and the frosting recipe sounds amazing! Can't wait to try it.

  4. Those cookies look like they would melt in your mouth! I wish it was Valentine's month instead of Valentine's Day! Have a great weekend!

  5. Yum...nothing better than sugar cookies in my book!!!! That's a lot of cookies to bake. I don't know about you, but for me baking is a stress relief so I can spend way to long in the kitchen and not even realize it :)

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
