Ingredients

Cookie

3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon or cardamom

Frosting

2 cups powdered sugar
1 tablespoon Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon or cardamom
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 to 3 tablespoons milk
White nonpareils
Red and/or green food color, if desired

Directions

Combine 3/4 cup butter, 3/4 cup powdered sugar, egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Beat until well mixed. Divide dough in half. Cover with plastic food wrap. Refrigerate until firm (2 hours or overnight).

Heat oven to 375°F. Divide each half of dough into 15 portions. Work with 5 portions at a time, keeping remaining dough refrigerated. Roll out each portion on unfloured surface into 7 1/2-inch long rope. Cut each rope into 5 (1 1/2-inch) logs.

To assemble cabins, place 3 logs horizontally onto ungreased cookie sheet to form cabin; press logs together slightly. Place remaining 2 logs in an inverted V-shape above cabin to form roof; press together slightly. Repeat with remaining 7 1/2-inch ropes. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheet to wire cooling rack.  Cool completely.

Combine all frosting ingredients except milk in small bowl; add enough milk for desired frosting consistency. Frost or pipe cabin roofs; sprinkle with nonpareils. Tint remaining frosting; decorate as desired.
