Vanilla Meatball Cookies


2 cups AP flour, sifted
2 tsp baking powder
1 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
3 whole eggs, room temperature
1 1/2 Tbs vanilla
2 cups confectioners sugar, sifted
2 tsp vanilla
3 Tbs melted butter
2 Tbs whole milk


  1. Whisk together flour and baking powder.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar, about 2 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, scraping down bowl until fully incorporated. Beat for 5 minutes.
  3. Slowly add flour mixture into butter mixture until dough forms, being sure not to over beat.
  4. Let dough chill at least 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350ºF and line baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a medium-sized ice cream scoop, place dough batter 1 inch apart of baking sheet. They will not spread that much. Bake 15 minutes and immediately remove to cooling sheet.
  5. While cookies are baking, make icing by whisking together confectioners sugar, vanilla, butter and milk or water in a medium bowl. Spoon icing onto cookies immediately after coming out of oven, being sure to decorate quickly as well before icing hardens.
Yield: 24 cookies
