4th of July Cookies

 

I love when any holiday rolls around and people have super cute cookies. The problem is, I can’t decorate cookies to save my life.

Yes, I’ve watched all those awesome Facebook videos where someone decorates amazing cookies in seconds. Not ever going to be a thing for me.

Just keeping it real.

Now, these 4th of July cookies are pretty awesome because they literally take zero decorating skills. As long as you can put some frosting on with a butter knife or spatula, you’re good to go.

My kids love this recipe. I mean who doesn’t love a good patriotic dessert, right?

Keep in mind that in this recipe, I do make my own frosting. However, you can also just use store bought. Totally up to you!

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Step 2

Combine butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer.

Step 3

Add sugar and mix well.

Step 4

Mix in the egg and the vanilla.

Step 5

Add in the flour, baking powder, and salt.

Step 6

Mix well until the dough forms.

Step 7

Fold in holiday sprinkles (I used about ½ cup. You could do more or less).

Step 8

Line a 9×13 baking dish with parchment paper and lightly spray with cooking spray.

Step 9

Bake for 30 – 35 minutes (time may depend on how thick your dough is).

Step 10

Remove from oven and let cool completely.

Step 11

While the cookie is cooling, make the frosting (directions below).

Step 12

Once the cookie is cooled, remove from baking dish and frost. Garnish with holiday sprinkles and cut into squares or bars.
