Frozen Birthday Snowflake Cookies
The movie frozen has inspired us to make cookies! We used them for our daughter's birthday party at frozen treats. We also made Olaf snowmen, Elsa gloves and mini cookies. This recipe makes about 5 dozen cookies.  This recipe also freezes well so if you don't need that many, freeze the unused portion as dough.

Cookie Recipe
5 1/2 Cups Flour1 tsp baking soda1/2 tsp salt1 Cup Sour Cream1 cup softened butter, unsalted2 cups sugar2 eggs
Using a mixer, cream butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, & sour cream. Then add soda, salt. Add flour in one cup at a time, slowly. This makes a lot, so depending on your mixer, you may have to finish adding flour by hand with a wooden spoon. Don't over work your machine. It will get thick.I use a Kichenaid Artisan 5qt mixer and it seems to work ok with the paddle. Cover with plastic wrap and chill at least one hour. Preheat oven to 350. Line baking sheets with parchment for easy cookie transfer. Roll a handful of chilled dough on a floured surface. About 1/4 inch thick, cut out cookies and bake 8-10 minutes. Only til edges of cookies are slightly browned. Try to keep the cookies rolled out in uniform thickness, otherwise some will cook faster and burn. Do not over cook. Let cool on cooling racks. Store in sealed container, or zip lock bags, up to 2 days, for freshness or freeze for up to 1 month. 

Frosting2 cups powdered sugar2 TBS butter softened1 tsp vanilla, (use clear for white)3-4 TBS milkfood coloring as neededSprinkles
Frost when cookies are completely cool. Mix butter vanilla and powdered sugar, then add milk one TBS at a time until you reach desired consistency, thick paste is best. Separate into bowls and use food coloring as desired. If still too thick, add 1/2 tsp milk as needed. Frost cookies, and let sit for 1-2 hours, to let harden before stacking. Use parchment between layers if stacking. Cover in air tight container.
