Ingredients

Directions

  1. Mix sugar, butter, vanilla and egg in a fridge friendly bowl using an electric mixer or wire whisk. Gradually incorporate flour and baking soda. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 1 / 2 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spoon 1 tablespoon each cookies onto buttered cookie sheet. Leave room on cookie sheet for cookies to expand as they cook.
  3. Bake until edges become lightly browned. Wait until cookies are cool before frosting.
  4. While cookies are cooling, make buttercream. Blend all ingredients in a mini-food processor. Scrape the sides of the processor bowl and blend again. Taste and add more sugar if needed. Turn one cookie upside down and apply buttercream. Top it with a second cookie right side up and sprinkle with sugar crystals if desired. Tip: only frost cookies you plan to serve. Store extra buttercream in fridge and cookies separately.
