How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Divide dough in half. Shape each half into ball; flatten slightly. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; refrigerate at least 2-3 hours until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 400°F.

  4. STEP 4

    Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8- to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with 3-inch round cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.

  5. STEP 5

    Bake 6-8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.

  6. STEP 6

    Combine powdered sugar, 2/3 cup butter, vanilla and enough whipping cream for desired frosting consistency in bowl. Beat at medium speed until well mixed. Reserve a portion of white frosting. Tint remaining portions of frosting with desired food colors. Spread or pipe frosting as desired.
