Cookies n cream cutout cookies for another Bufflao Bills win.

The holidays are here and thus begins my holiday baking season. I also need to bake on NFL game day to ensure a Bills win. Cutout cookies are my favorite and although my decorating skills are subpar at best, people enjoy what I bake. Recently i found new extracts , like cookies n cream and chocolate, so i bought some. I used the cookies n cream first. I just basically took a sugar cookie recipe and instead of using vanilla, I used the cookies n cream. I also added crushed dark chocolate Oreos. I topped them with a homemade oreo filling and melted chocolate chips. Thanksgiving is Thursday, so I used my turkey, pumpkin, football and football helmet cookie cutters. Cookie ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tbs cream cheese (I used neufactel)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp cookies n cream extract
  • 2 1/2 -3 cups flour (scooped from flour container into measuring cup)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 6 Oreos finely crushed

Directions – cream butter, cream cheese and sugar. Add egg and extract. Fold in 2 1/2 cups flour and salt. Add more flour if dough seems too sticky., cover and chill overnight in fridge. Preheat oven to 350. Roll and cut. Stagger on cookie sheet lined with nonstick baking liners.Bake 9 minutes. (I made thick cookies). Cool completely.Oreo cookie filling ingredients

  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tbs sugar
