Chocolate cookie dough
What You’ll Need
Makes about 2 dozen cookies
Active Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 2 sheet pans with parchment. Set the dough and butter on the counter and let it start to come to room temperature, 10 minutes.
On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough about ¼-inch thick. Use cookie cutters to stamp out shapes. Transfer the shapes to the prepared pans and bake just until firm, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool completely.
Meanwhile, make the frosting: In a bowl, combine the powdered sugar, ½ cup butter, at room temperature, ¼ cup milk, and a pinch of salt. Using a handheld electric mixer, beat until fluffy.
When the cookies are cool, spread with the frosting. Serve right away or transfer to an airtight container and store for up to 5 days.
