These chocolate peanut butter cookies are decorated with all white vanilla buttercream. I just love the way the designs pop against the dark cookie!
I decorated each snowflake with a unique design.
I thought I would run out of ideas, but I just kept making them up as I went along.. my husband helped design a couple. (The bottom left snowflake in the pic above was partly his design.)
These are my personal favorites:
They even look cute all together…
Here is my buttercream recipe. It’s very easy and adaptable and perfect to top any cookie!

Lisa you’re so funny!! thank you thank you, i’m glad you like them. 🙂
Hi Carrie! I have a holiday bake sale and this buttercream sounds like just what I need. I planned on making snowflakes! If they turn out half as good as these I will be lucky. I might make cakes but cookie frosting is defiantly a gift you have !
Thank you!! I use this buttercream on my cupcakes and my cookies! It’s stable and easy to pipe, dries nicely, and is a cinch to throw together!
I always assumed you used royal Icing on your cookies. Does butter cream work better for you?
On my cookies I use buttercream to outline and detail. I use a simple icing to fill in (just powdered sugar and milk).
