Use frosting to decorate the roof with snow. Add a door, window or holiday wreath with additional tinted frosting.
3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 large Land O Lakes® Egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon or cardamom
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

Combine 3/4 cup butter, 3/4 cup powdered sugar, egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour and 1 teaspoon cinnamon; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Divide dough in half. Cover with plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours or overnight until firm.
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.
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 8-10 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely.
Combine all frosting ingredients except milkin bowl; add enough milk for desired frosting consistency. Frost or pipe cabin roofs; sprinkle with nonpareils. Tint remaining frosting; decorate as desired.
