Old Fashioned Butter Cookies with Butter Frosting
December 22, 2012

we loved this recipe. i made my cookies 1/4" thick by 4" across; they baked for about 7 minutes. the frosting is grand. i used my food processor to make the frosting and since the dough yielded me 18 great big cookies and one mutant one, that the dogs devoured, i cut the frosting recipe in half; so, .5C butter, 1.5C powdered sugar, .5T vanilla, 3-4T evaporated milk. the frosting was a little lighter in color than the evaporated milk so next time i might try milk and see if that gets me the white i want. the frosting generously covered my cookies and i topped them with rainbow sprinkles because i was feeling nostalgic. thanks for sharing becky.
