Do I need to say anything more than Praline Buttercream Bars? Come on, seriously, who couldn't resist a cookie with a name like that?

I hope that you and your readers will enjoy these cookies as much as I have!

Dani from Phoenix, Arizona is the first person to submit a cookie this year! 

Dani shares her and her daughter's favorite cookie recipe for Jen's Heavenly Confectioner's Sugar Cookies from Better Homes and Gardens. They're so "melt-in-your-mouth" good that she makes them for every holiday. Makes about 40 cookies, depending upon size.

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1 1/2 cups sifted confectioner's sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Optional: lemon, lime or orange juice and/or zest to taste (about 1 tablespoon of each)

1. In a large bowl, beat butter and cream cheese for 30 seconds with an electric mixer on medium speed. Add confectioner's sugar, baking powder, egg, vanilla, half the flour, and juice/zest if using. Beat  on low until incorporated. Beat one minute on medium. Add remaining flour, beating on low until well combined.
2. Divide dough into 2 balls. Wrap in wax paper and flatten into 3/4-inch-thick rounds. Refrigerate 1 hour, or until firm.
3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. On a floured surface or between two sheets of wax paper, roll dough to 1/2-inch thick. Do not roll thinner or dough will be difficult to remove from cookie cutters. Cut out cookies. You may have to refrigerate scraps before re-rolling. Add sprinkles, non-pareils, etc. before baking or they won't stick without icing. Bake on ungreased cookie sheets until the edges are set but not browned, about 8-9 minutes. Cool on a rack before icing.
4. Icing: 1 cup sifted confectioner's sugar, 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract or lemon/lime/orange juice, and several drops of milk. Combine sugar and flavoring. Add milk and whisk until desired consistency is reached. Dip cookies in icing and place on a wire rack. Decorate with sprinkles.

Katie Zeller said...

Great round-up! I am really missing the cookies this Christmas.... But, with mon mari now a Type 1 diabetic, I really couldn't do it to him. Not that he can't eat them - as part of a meal, but he used to eat them continually, all day as they came out of the oven - that was his favorite. That he can't do....
So I'll salivate over the gorgeous photos here ;-))
