Sugar Cookie Frosting


On Valentine's day the kids and I baked up some Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix cookies to decorate.  Super yummy but super flat... maybe should've followed the baking directions for high altitude and added some more flour...  The frosting was so complimentary I thought I'd post it.  It is sweet and rich so you only need a thin layer, but it was the perfect "kid cookie".  The hearts of course got eaten up right away. 

And in case you need photographic evidence of this frosting's deliciosity:   

(The cookie is fully intact but the frosting is all licked off.)
Told ya it's good.

    Sugar Cookie Frosting
Recipe adapted from

-1 lb. box confectioner's sugar (I just measure out 16 oz. on my kitchen scale.)
-1 teaspoon vanilla extract
-1 stick butter, softened (I use salted)
-4-5 Tbsp heavy cream
-1/8 tsp. salt, or just a pinch
Mix all ingredients until smooth. Add more cream if frosting is too stiff, add confectioner's sugar if too runny. Frost thinly over sugar cookies.
Pin It!
