  • 1/2 cup of leftover frosting
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


  • Preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Mix everything together.
  • Place 12 roughly even scoops of cookie dough on a cookie sheet lined with a Silpat or parchment paper.
  • Bake for 13 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are lightly browned.
  • Cool on a cooling rack and eat!


If the frosting recipe contains salt, you can leave that out of the cookie recipe. Feel free to play around with the recipe by adding chocolate chips or other mix-ins to the cookies.
