Time to make the yummy buttercream frosting!!

  • In your mixing bowl, beat room temperature butter on medium-high speed for about 5 minutes. This will ensure to make your buttercream extra fluffy!
  • Gradually add in the powdered sugar. You may need to turn the speed down as well! ๐Ÿ™‚ Continue to mix until the powdered sugar is well incorporated. This should take about 3-5 minutes.

  • Add in cream or half and half to the frosting. You may need to add a touch more to reach your desired frosting consistency. ๐Ÿ™‚
  • To assemble the cookies, pipe or spread the cream filling on the flat side of half of the cookies and put the remaining cookies on top.
