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
1 egg
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silpat.
  3. 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.
  4. 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).
  5. 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.
  6. If they are spreading too much during baking, you can add a touch more flour and chill the dough longer.
