Frozen Whipped Cream


  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) salted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/4 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt

How to make this recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.

  2. In a large bowl cream together the butter and powdered sugar until well combined. Add the flour, vanilla, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, nutmeg and salt and continue mixing for 2 more minutes.

  3. Divide the dough into 2 equal parts and roll into 7-inch logs. Cut 15 cookies from each log. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes, or until the cookies are just barely browned on the bottom.

  4. Remove from the oven and let rest for 1 minute before moving the cookies onto a cooling rack.

Make Ahead

Cookies can be made up to 3 days in advance and stored in an air-tight container at room temperature or frozen for up to a month. Unbaked cookie dough can be frozen for up to 3 months. Frozen cookies can be baked straight from the freezer, just add an extra minute or two to the baking time.
