Heart Shaped Shortbread Cookies with Strawberry Almond Butter Swirl Frosting
Preheat oven to 325F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, and vanilla extract until light and fluffy, about 3-5 minutes. Add the flour and beat until combined, the dough will be crumbly- that’s ok!
Roll out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead the dough to form a ball, then using a rolling pin, roll the dough to ¼ inch thick. Cut out the cookies using a heart shaped cookie cutter or your favorite shape. This will make 12, 2” heart shaped cookies. Carefully transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden.
Meanwhile make the frosting. In a medium bowl cream together the butter and cream cheese until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the powdered sugar and freeze dried strawberry powder and beat until combined. Add the vanilla extract and 1 tbsp of milk, adding more until spreadable and reached desired consistency. Allow cookies to cool before frosting.
Frost each cookie, then add a dollop of La Tourangelle French Roast Almond Butter and swirl with a thin knife or toothpick. Enjoy!
