Hog Wild Sprinkle Cake Cookies
makes 2 dozen

What you need:
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups Vanilla Sugar* (can substitute regular sugar…but it’s so much better with vanilla sugar)
2 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup Hog Wild Sprinkles, divided
Vanilla Buttercream Frosting (recipe to follow), tinted lavender, copper and light pink

What to do: 
1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a baking tray with parchment and set aside.
2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
3. In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, add the butter and vanilla sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add the eggs in one at a time, beating after each one until completely incorporated. Add in vanilla extract.
4. Gradually add the flour mixture into the butter mixture until fully incorporated and dough comes together. Add 1/2 cup sprinkles and stir JUST until mixed in.
5. Using a 1 1/2 tablespoon scoop, drop the dough onto the prepared baking tray (about 2″ apart). Bake until just set and lightly golden on the bottom (about 12 minutes). Allow to cool slightly before removing to a cooling rack. Repeat with remaining dough. Allow cookies to cool completely.
6. Using a star tip fitted in a pastry bag, the top of each cookie and sprinkle with remaining Hog Wild Sprinkles

Vanilla Buttercream Frosting
yields about 2 1/2 cups

What you need:
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
3 cups confectioner’s sugar, sifted
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla paste (can sub vanilla extract)
2-4 tablespoons milk
copper, lavender and light pink gel food coloring (or any color you like!)

What to do:
In the bowl of a standing mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium speed until creamy. Reduce the speed to low and gradually add 6 cups of the confectioner’s sugar. Add the salt, vanilla paste and 4 tablespoons of milk. Beat for 2 minutes. If the frosting is too thin, add more of the sugar (1/2 a cup at a time). If the frosting is too thick, add more of the milk (1 tablespoon at a time). Divide frosting between 3 bowls, add just a little of each food coloring to one of each of the bowls.

*Vanilla sugar is sugar that has been with a vanilla bean in a jar for a few weeks imparting a mild vanilla flavor
