Best Ever Buttercream Frosting (adapted from allrecipes.com and minkette.rebeccaminkoff.com)
Ingredients:
2 C unsalted butter (4 sticks)
8 C confectioners sugar, sifted
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 C heavy whipping cream*Use clear versus dark vanilla extract for a whiter frosting.
Directions:
In bowl or stand mixer, cream butter until light and fluffy. Add confectioners sugar and blend until smooth.
Add salt, vanilla and 6 oz whipping cream. Continue to blend until well incorporated. Add additional 2 ounces of cream if frosting is too thick.
Soft and Chewy Almond Sugar Cookies (CCK Original)

Ingredients:
1 1/2 C white sugar
2/3 C butter (cold)
2/3 C shortening (room temp)
2 eggs
2 tsp almond extract
2 1/2 C cake flour
1 C all purpose flour
2 tsp cornstarch
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
sugar in the raw (I like raw sugar for this, but any coarse sugar would work)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare baking sheet.Cream sugar, butter and shortening. Stir in eggs and almond extract. Combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder and salt and add to butter/egg mixture.Stir to combine until dough forms. (Add sprinkles to the dough for the “funfetti effect.”)
Form dough into walnut sized balls (I used a small cookie scoop) and roll in raw sugar. Place on prepared pan.
Bake for 4 minutes. Open oven and quickly press each cookie to desired thickness with back of spoon. Bake for additional 4 minutes (8 minutes total).Remove to cooling rack. Allow to cool completely.
Enjoy!
