Recipe by Bonnie G 2
READY IN: 27mins
YIELD: 24 cookies




  • Place all cookie dough ingredients in bowl of your mixer.
  • Beat on medium speed until a soft, smooth dough is formed.
  • Remove from bowl, shape into a 3/4" thick disc.
  • Wrap well in plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes, or as long as overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350, line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Shape dough into small balls, about the size of a large gumball (a teaspoon cookie scoop will help).
  • Bake for 7-10 minutes.
  • Watch cookies carefully to avoid scorching bottoms.
  • Remove cookies from oven and allow to cool slightly on pans while you prepare glaze.
  • For glaze, blend the sifted confectioners sugar with heavy cream and vanilla.
  • Glaze will be thick, almost icing consistency.
  • Using a teaspoon, portion glaze over barely warm cookies.
  • You can pipe the glaze from a piping bag or zip-top bag with a corner cut off as well.
  • Top with chocolate pearls, slivers of maraschino cherry, or chocolate sprinkles. Store any leftovers at room temperature for up to a week.
