Make an Easter Sugar Cookie

By on April 4, 2021 under Recipes Ideas

One last fun treat before tomorrow! I’m betting you have everything you need to make an Easter Sugar Cookie Cake already in your kitchen!

Don’t have M&Ms? Use mini eggs!

3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup M&Ms Use spring colored M&Ms
1/2 cup Easter sprinkles
3 tablespoons unsalted butter softened
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream or milk

1Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9 round cake pan with foil and spray with nonstick cooking spray.
2Make the cookie cake: Beat butter and sugar with a hand or a stand mixer until creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla, then mix in baking soda, salt, and cream of tartar. Slowly mix in flour. Stir in M&Ms and sprinkles. Press batter into prepared pan, pressing more M&Ms onto the top as desired. Bake for 19-22 minutes or until the edges are just turning a light golden brown. Its better to under bake this dough than over bake it. The cake will continue cooking a bit as it cools so err on the side of underdone for the best tasting cookie. Let it cool completely before frosting.
3Make the frosting: beat butter until smooth, then slowly beat in powdered sugar until crumbly. Add salt and vanilla, then add 1 teaspoon of heavy whipping cream. Beat until smooth, adding another teaspoon of heavy whipping cream to get a spreadable texture. To frost: use a 1M tip and a ziplock or piping bag to decorate the cookie cake. Top with more sprinkles and M&Ms.
