Total Time

Prep: 25 min. Bake: 20 min.


about 3 dozen

Piped-on frosting made my cookies into vivid mini-quilt blocks for a sweet ending to the theme luncheon. My friends appreciated the fact that even the food reflected our mutual love of quilting. —Grace Yaskovic, Branchville, New Jersey


  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup vanilla frosting and food coloring or decorator's icing


  1. In a bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add eggs; mix well. Add flour; mix well. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour. Line a 15x10x1-in. baking pan with heavy-duty foil. Press dough onto the bottom of pan. Score dough with a sharp knife to make 2x2-in. squares (discard scraps or reroll and bake as directed). Bake at 325° for 16-18 minutes or until set (cookies will not brown). Carefully lift cookies out of pan using foil. Cut into squares; cool. Mix frosting with food coloring to make desired colors or use decorator's icing. Decorate cookies with quilt patterns.
