  • Author: brandie


1 C. butter, softened to room temperature

1 C. granulated sugar

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 egg

3 tsp. baking powder

3 C. flour

green frosting (I used Pillsbury funfetti)

holiday sprinkles

candy stars

3 star shaped cookie cutters (small, medium and large)

star frosting tip
disposable piping bag


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Using a hand mixer or a stand mixer, combine the softened butter. Whip until creamy, 2-3 minutes.

Add in the vanilla extra and egg, continue to mix.

Sift in the 3 cups of flour and baking powder.

The mixture will be stiff so use your hands to finish mixing, if needed.

Divide the dough into 3-4 smaller batches.

*Use a rolling pin to roll the dough out onto a lightly floured surface to about 1/4″ thick.

Use the star cookie cutters to cut the same number of stars in each size.

Place the cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet about 2″ a part.

Place the cookies in the oven.

Set a timer for 3-4 minutes and remove the cookie sheet from the oven and remove the smallest stars from the cookie sheet.

Place the cookie sheet back into the oven.

Set the timer for another 2 minutes and then remove the medium size stars.

Place the cookie sheet back into the oven for the large stars to finish baking another 2-3 minutes.

Let the cookies cool.

Attach the frosting tip to the disposable piping bag and fill with frosting.

starting with the largest star, generously frost each cookie and stack from largest to smallest.

Top the small star cookie with frosting, add a star and holiday sprinkles.

Repeat with the rest of the cookies.
