all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons
baking powder
1/2 teaspoon
salt
1 cup
sugar
1/2 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
2
large Land O Lakes® Eggs
1 teaspoon
vanilla
1/2 teaspoon
almond extract
2/3 cup

1 tablespoon
multi-colored nonpareils

Frosting

6 tablespoons
milk
2 tablespoons
all-purpose flour
1/2 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter
1/2 cup
sugar
 
Multi-colored nonpareils, if desired
 
*Substitute 2 teaspoons lemon juice or vinegar and enough milk to equal 2/3 cup; let stand 5 minutes.

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. Combine 2 1/2 cups flour, baking powder and salt in bowl; set aside.
  3. Combine 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup butter in bowl; beat until creamy. Add eggs, vanilla and almond flavoring; beat until well mixed. Add half of flour mixture; beat until well mixed. Add buttermilk; beat until well mixed. Add remaining flour mixture; beat until well mixed. Stir in nonpareils just until mixed.
  4. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes or until tops spring back when lightly touched. Cool completely.
  5. Combine milk and 2 tablespoons flour in 1-quart saucepan; beat with whisk until smooth. Cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, 3-4 minutes or until mixture thickens and just comes to a boil. Remove from heat; cool 15 minutes.
  6. Combine 1/2 cup butter and 1/2 cup sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add flour mixture; beat 5 minutes or until light and creamy and all sugar is dissolved.
  7. Spread about 2 tablespoons frosting onto bottom of 1 cookie; top with another cookie, bottom-side down. Press together lightly. Roll frosted edges in additional nonpareils, if desired.

This filling is the best! And it's just as easy as the usual shortening/powdered sugar variety.
