This recipe came with a purchase of cookie cutters. It makes a lot, so is great for gifting.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To make cookies: Blend together butter and cream cheese; add sugar, egg yolks, and vanilla. Gradually add flour and chill for 2 hours. Roll out on a floured surface to 1/4" thick. Use cookie cutters to cut. Place on greased baking sheets (I use parchment paper). Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes. Let cool completely before frosting.
  2. To make frosting: Combine 1-1/2 C powdered sugar, butter, shortening, vanilla, and milk; beat until smooth. Add remaining sugar and beat on medium speed for 3 minutes until creamy. If using different food colorings, divide frosting and add flood coloring to each bowl. Frost cookies.
