Recipe Ingredients

1 cup Smart Balance® Blended Butter Sticks, softened
1/4 cup granulated sugar

Put Smart Balance® Blended Butter Sticks and granulated sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes.

Press thumb into center of each cookie.

Bake 10 minutes.

Remove from oven; press centers with the end of a wooden spoon.

Bake until golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.

Let cool completely on sheets.

Stir together confectioners’ sugar and Smart Balance® Low Fat Milk and Omega-3s.

Tint with food coloring.

Fill centers with icing.

Let set overnight.

Cookies can be stored in airtight containers up to 1 week.
