Butter Biscuits

The cookie dough for these Butter Biscuits is ideal to cut out with a cupcake-shaped cutter and frost. Sprinkles, cachous and assorted sweets can be used as toppings.

Frosting these cupcake-shaped cookies is a perfect activity for a cupcake-themed party. Alternatively, frosted cupcake cookies are a gorgeous party favor for birthday party guests to take home.

You can use any type of frosting but I prefer royal icing as it sets nice and hard and is easy to spread and colors well.
