Form Cookies:

On a lightly floured working surface, divide the dough into quarters. Roll them out one at a time until they are roughly ⅓ inch thick. Then, use a cookie cutter to cut out circles.

HOW TO MAKE FLUFFY BUTTERCREAM FROSTING

1. Using a stand mixer with a whisk attachment, whisk the butter until it is light and fluffy. Mix in the sugar until smooth. 2. Then, add the remaining ingredients except for the milk, and whisk on medium-high speed. Slowly mix in a tablespoon of milk at a time until your desired consistency is reached. 3. If desired, stir food coloring into the frosting. Then, frost your cookies, and decorate them with sprinkles, candy pieces, and more.

SERVE & ENJOY!
