Olivia Crashes the Holiday Treats Feature

Nana and Papa have been sending little pre-Christmas treats for You-Know-Who, including the OLIVIA Cookie Kit.

So we made some! The sugar cookie and frosting recipes are quite tasty. YKW and I recommend crushing up some peppermint candy to sprinkle on top.


Even if you don't have the OLIVIA Cookie Kit, you can make tasty frosted sugar cookies.

OLIVIA'S SUGAR COOKIES

1/3 c butter
1/3 c shortening
3/4 c sugar
1 tsp baking powd
dash salt
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 c flour

Beat butter and sugar in a mixer. Add sugar, BP, and salt and beat until combined. Beat in egg and vanilla. Beat in flour. Divide in half, cover, and chill if necessary (we chilled about 1/2 hour). Roll half of dough until it is 1/8" thick. Use Olivia cookie cutter to shape dough into fantastic Olivia shapes! Bake at 375F for 7-8 mins. Cool, then frost!

FROSTING

1/2 stick butter (softened)
1.5 c conectioners' sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 Tb milk
food coloring

Cream butter and sugar at low speed. Add extract, then milk a little at a time until it reaches desired consistency. Add color, if desired! Store in an airtight container.
