  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened (I prefer melted.)
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp. red food coloring
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • parchment paper

Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese

  • 1 (1 lb.) box powdered sugar


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine first five ingredients in mixing bowl. Beat butter at medium speed in electric mixer until creamy; 2 minutes. Gradually add sugar, beating well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating until blended after each addition. Beat in food coloring and vanilla. Add flour mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat at low speed until blended after each addition, stopping to scrape the bowl as needed.

Drop dough by 1/4 cupfuls 3 inches apart onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Spread dough to 3-inch rounds. Bake for 15 minutes, until tops are set; cool on baking sheets 5 minutes. Remove to wire racks, and cool completely.Crumble 1 cookie into fine crumbs to use as garnish.

To make frosting, beat cream cheese, butter, vanilla, and salt at medium speed with an electric mixer for 1 minute, until creamy. Gradually add powdered sugar; beating at low speed 2 minutes or until smooth.Spread about 2 1/2 tablespoons cream cheese frosting onto each cookie; sprinkle with crumbs.
