Happy 4th of July Weekend, Everyone!
Chocolate sugar cookies frosted (generously!) with vanilla orange frosting and dressed in their summertime best with festive sprinkles. What’s not to love? Half Pint and Pickle in the Middle actually giggled with joy when they discovered these cookies in the kitchen. Half Grown is too big to giggle over a cookie, but not too big to devour them with a (half hidden) smile.
These cookies freeze well, so tuck this recipe away for a bit of rainy day summertime fun. Make a double batch, and freeze them to bring along on your next picnic!
For the cookies:
2/3 cup softened butter
3/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon rum (or vanilla extract)
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup softened butter
3 cups confectioner’s sugar
1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
