Leftover Frosting Cookies
These were really tasty, and so soft and tender! A great way to use up some leftover frosting you have laying around from other baking activities (for us it was Lindsey's recent birthday party)! I combined some leftover vanilla and strawberry frosting and made these cookies. I actually really liked them. There was something that hinted of meringue in their texture. They were definitely unique! My dough was somewhat wet / sticky and I wondered how much the texture would have changed if I'd added a touch more flour. I might play with that in future iterations. Mine also spread quite a bit during baking - so I should have chilled the dough first.
Overall a great base recipe to play around with! The texture and flavor were lovely!
Leftover Frosting Cookies from the Angry Baker
2 cups leftover frosting
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat.
- Whip the frosting in the bowl of a stand mixer, then combine with the egg. Slowly blend in the dry ingredients. If the cookie dough feels too wet, add a little more flour.
- Roll into walnut sized balls and place 12 on a baking sheet. Refrigerate batter between batches (if you want the dough to be easier to handle it - chill it for 2 hours before baking the first batch).
- Bake 12-15 minutes in pre-heated oven, until bottom and edges are light brown. The cookies will be very soft. Allow to cool about 10 minutes on the baking sheet before trying to move them.
- If they are spreading too much during baking, you can add a touch more flour and chill the dough longer.
