Additional Information



  • 1 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 3 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • Cookie cutters
  • Wilton® Pre-Mixed Icing Bags


  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, beat sugar, butter and cream cheese until soft and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat. Add in flour slowly.
  2. Dough should become soft and not sticky. Roll into a ball and separate in half.
  3. Make two small discs out of the halves of dough. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  5. Roll dough to 1/8" thickness and cut with Easter cookie cutter shapes.
  6. Bake 10 minutes, until slightly browned. Allow to cool completely.
  7. Using Wilton Icing and the round tip, pipe out designs by pulling icing bag back and forth across cookies, in a zig zag motion. Accent with other colors, or use start tip to create ridges for carrot leaves.
  8. Allow icing to set, about 40 minutes.
