Here’s a fun new way to decorate cookies for the holidays— frost brownie cut-outs instead! Recipe developed in partnership with Go Bold with Butter.
While frosting sugar cookies is a family tradition that I am quite fond of, it can often be a somewhat frustrating experience.
The cookies spread during baking and Santa and his eight tiny reindeer turn into indistinguishable blobs. Or the cookies burn because we’re having too much fun to pay close enough attention. And by the time we get to frosting we just don’t care anymore and our creativity takes a back seat to our sweet-tooth hunger pains.
So this year I’m changing things up and frosting fudgey brownies instead. One-bowl brownies couldn’t be an easier substitute for rolled sugar cookies, and who wouldn’t love the chocolate switcheroo? And here’s the real clincher: brownie scraps to munch on.
I am proud to announce that I am now a contributor to the Go Bold with Butter blog. There I’ll be sharing some of my favorite butter recipes, like these frosted brownie cut-outs, alongside so many other great bloggers I admire.
A quick note about cutting out the brownies: I used small cookie cutters and had a little difficulty getting the brownie out of all the tiny corners. Use larger cookie cutters for a much smoother and headache-free experience.
