Jenna requested a light summer treat-- nothing too heavy! I had just the perfect concoction in mind!! This recipe can be executed in a bunch of different ways-- I decided to go the bite size route since we were eating dinner out! This recipe is extremely simple and one that EVERYONE loves!! The crust is composed of just a basic sugar cookie!
1 1/2 c unsalted butter, softened
1 c sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 1/2 c all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
Cook at 350F.
In a bowl, beat butter and sugar until fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla extract. On low, beat in flour and salt. Divide dough in half; shape each half into a 1/2-inch-thick disk. Wrap in plastic wrap; chill until firm. On floured surface, roll dough 1/8-inch thick; cut into shapes. Transfer to ungreased baking sheet. Bake until lightly golden around the edges, 10 minutes. just your basic sugar cookie
Allow cookies to cool then add your fixings! :)
Cream Cheese Topping
4 ounces cream cheese
1/3 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Blend together until smooth. Add this to the top of your cookies and sprinkle with your favorite fruit! AND HAPPY BDAY BIB!!
