Apple Butter Sugar Cookies

Apple Butter Sugar Cookies

INGREDIENTS:

SUGAR COOKIES:

1 cup butter, softened
¼ cup Apple Butter
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
3 large egg yolks
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
¾ teaspoon almond extract
3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon salt

FROSTING:

4 cups powdered sugar
¼ cup Apple Butter
2 Tablespoons melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

 

DIRECTIONS:

STEP 1: In a large bowl, cream butter, apple butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

STEP 2: Beat in eggs, egg yolks, vanilla and almond extract.

STEP 3: In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder and salt.

STEP 4: Add dry ingredients into wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Do not overmix.

STEP 5: Shape dough into a disk; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1 hour.

STEP 6: Preheat oven to 375F degrees. Using a cookie scoop or ice cream scoop, scoop dough into balls about 2 Tablespoons each, place onto prepared baking sheet. Put 1/4 c of sugar and a pinch of salt in a dish. Stick the bottom of a glass in it.  This is going to be your cookie press. Firmly press it into the center of your dough ball.  You want your dough to spill out over the sides of the glass.  If there is a lip it’s even better. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Let cool before frosting.

MAKE THE FROSTING:

STEP 7: In a medium-sized bowl, mix powdered sugar, apple butter, melted butter and vanilla extract together until combined. Frost cooled cookies and sprinkle with sprinkles.
