The kids loved making this Butter Cookie Cake with Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting just as much as they loved eating it! It consists of a soft butter cookie, whipped cream cheese frosting and then we topped it with lots of fresh berries! It was the perfect cooking project for them with just a little assistance from me.
How to make Butter Cookie Cake with Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting:
First, we had to make the butter cookie base. We creamed the butter and sugar together. Then, added the eggs and vanilla. Last, we added the salt, baking powder and flour and mixed to combine. We used our stand mixer but a hand mixer will work great too! I let the kids handle the next step of pressing the dough into the pan that we lined with parchment paper. They got to use lots of their tools from our favorite brand Curious Chefs!
Bake the cookie at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until it begins to get lightly golden. Once the cookie is cool, remove from the pan (lift the parchment out). To make the frosting you are going to use your mixer again. Whip the heavy cream with powdered sugar until it is soft peaks. You’ll know it’s ready when you pull the mixer out and it stays standing up but curls over. Then, add in your softened cream cheese and extract. Whip until smooth.
Frost the cookie and top with your favorite fruits. The kids loved this part!
