This is the frosting I like to use for my soft sugar cookies, "Kathy's Frosted Soft Sugar Cookies". It uses heavy whipping cream and I like to add green or red food coloring to it when I make the cookies for Christmas. It should make enough to frost about 4-5 dozen cookies, depending on how thick of layer you use on each cookie and how big the cookies are. Update: 12/21/2009: I have changed the recipe to increase the amount of whipping cream. I agree with the other reviewer that more is needed but be sure to add the whipping cream gradually and then add the rest if needed.
- In mixing bowl, combine butter, confectioners' sugar, extract and enough cream to achieve spreading consistency.
- Add food coloring, if desired.
- Frost cookies.
