tasty tuesday: moustache cookies for movember - part 2

Welcome to part two of "moustache cookies for movember"!

Now these cookies are perfect for those of you that prefer buttercream icing, and have your very own moustache cookie cutters!

{If you missed part 1, where we used royal icing and round cookie, check it out HERE}

Again, you start with sugar cookies, and then whip up some buttercream icing to decorate!

Sugar Cookies

1/2 cup Butter
3/4 cup Sugar
2 tsp Vanilla
1 Egg
1 TBsp Milk
2 cup Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder

1)  Cream butter - add sugar, vanilla, egg and milk; beat hard.
2)  Add flour and baking powder to cream mixture and beat again. 
3)  Roll onto a floured counter and cut into shapes.
4)  Bake at 400 degrees F for 5-6 minutes.

For your buttercream icing, you can refer to our back to basic buttercream post HERE, and add food colouring depending on the colour of moustache you desire.  Or below is a recipe for chocolate buttercream!

Chocolate Buttercream

1/2 cup Butter (or margarine) {It's very important that this be at room temperature}
2 1/2 cups Icing Sugar
1/3 cup of Cocoa powder
1 tsp *Vanilla
2-5 TBSP Cream

1)  Begin by beating your butter on medium-high until well mixed.
2)  Add icing sugar, vanilla, and a couple tablespoons of cream.
3)  Beat on medium until combined.
4) Here's the tricky part: use a spatula to test the consistency, and stick a spoon in to do a taste test.  Adjust the taste and consistency by adding any of the above ingredients!

We decorated our cookies using sprinkles and shaved chocolate.  To draw in different textures, we used toothpicks and the back of our cookie cutters which had indents in them!

Jordyn and I made these for her epic moustache party....which you can read more about HERE!

Happy Movember!
