Are you in the throws of creating and making those amazing cookie trays? Are you looking for one more amazing recipe to make? But have little time to do it? I have an amazing short cut recipe here today! These Buttercream Thumbprint cookies are so good and super easy to whip up!
Starting with delicious Pillsbury Sugar Cookie dough and a few other ingredients these cookies are sooo good! I really love using Pillsbury Cookie Dough they are delicious and can be easily found at your local Walmart. If your really running short of time you can use pre-made frosting but today I decided to make my favorite butter cream frosting. It doesn’t take a lot of time to whip up this seriously delicious frosting.
These cookies are great because you can get your kids involved too. Kids love helping in the kitchen. They can be in charge of the rolling and dipping in the sprinkles and little thumbs are perfect for the thumbprint in the middle of the cookie. Plus the holidays are all about family right? What better way to have family time than to gather together in the kitchen and bake? My little granddaughter loves to bake with me.
So your going to want to let the cookie dough warm up just a bit so the extra flour can be added in. I took my dough out of the refrigerator and let it sit on the kitchen counter for about 30 minutes before mixing in the flour. The addition of the flour is needed to give these cookies just a little more body which helps them from spreading too much.
If you have a variety of sprinkles you could change it up a bit! Now another way to add some more variety is to color the frosting, I just kept it white for this batch but how cute would a red dollop of frosting look in the middle of the cookie!
From my home to yours I wish you much happiness and joy this holiday season!
