These cookies really do crumble. Today Mikey and I decided to make these cookies I found here on the Martha Stewart website. They are pretty dry (flour and butter) but they have a ginger frosting filling which helps sweeten them up. I really enjoyed the ginger filling, but it was not popular among the boys. Ew, what is that flavor? was Logan's response and Mikey's face said he was not loving it. I really love fresh ginger though so I rather enjoyed it. 
Here's what you need:
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, sifted
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Sanding sugar, in assorted colors
Combine all ingredients, form into small 3/4 inch balls, roll in sprinkles, and bake at 350º. I flattened mine a little after the first batch because they don't really melt at all.  

For the frosting/filling:
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar, sifted
  • 1 tablespoon honey
Beat ingredients together and spread between two cookies. Enjoy!

These cookies look pretty good---even if the boys don't care for them! Looks like it made a really big batch.


Those sound good and they are so pretty and cute!
