You’ll Need

  • 1 cup butter
  • ¼ cup cream cheese
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • Pinch of salt
  • 2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 cups icing sugar
  • 2–4 Tbsp water
  • Gel food colouring

Prep and Cook

  • 1
    Cream the butter and cream cheese until fluffy.
  • 2
    Add in sugar and beat until well incorporated. Add egg, salt and vanilla and mix well.
  • 3
    Add flour, one cup at a time, being careful not to over mix. Wrap the dough in plastic and chill for at least 1 hour.
  • 4
    Roll the dough (1/2 inch thick) out onto a floured surface and cut out the cookies.
  • 5
    Bake on a parchment-lined sheet for 10-11 minutes, or until the edges barely begin to brown. Cool completely before decorating.
  • 6
    To ice the cookies, combine the icing sugar and 2 Tbsp of water. Add more water, as necessary to create a thick spreadable icing. Tint with gel food colouring to desired colours and spread the icing over the cookies.
  • 7
    Decorate with sprinkles for the eyes and allow the icing to dry before serving.
