Sugar Cookie Base Cookie

  • 1 1/2 cups salted butter room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder

Chocolate Fudge Frosting + Toppings

  • 3/4 cup salted butter room temperature
  • 4 oz cream cheese room temperature
  • 1 cup dutch processed cocoa powder
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • milk to thin
  • chocolate sprinkles


  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • While the oven is preheating make the cookie dough. Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Scrape the sides, add in the eggs and vanilla extract. Beat until mixed.
  • Scrape the sides and add in the flour, & baking powder. Mix until thoroughly combined.
  • Scoop out a generous 1/3 cup of dough and roll into a ball. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Flatten the cookie dough so it looks similar to what your finished cookie will look like. It should.be about 1/2 inch thick. The cookies will spread just a little bit, not much. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Arrange on a cookie sheet. I tend to only put 6 cookies per pan.
  • Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes or until the centers of the cookies have puffed up and are no longer glossy.
  • While the cookies are cooling, make the frosting, by whipping the butter and cream cheese until smooth.
  • Add the powdered sugar, one cup at a time.
  • Add in the cocoa powder.
  • Add the vanilla.
  • Add milk 1 tbsp at a time until you've reached your desired consistency.
  • Add the frosting to a piping bag fit with a large closed star attachment. Pipe the frosting onto the warm cookies in a spiral, starting in the center of the cookie working your way out.
  • Sprinkle with chocolate sprinkles on top of the frosting. Serve warm.
