Bakery-Style Frosted Sugar Cookies

2¾ cups cake flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
2 tablespoons heavy cream

Frosting:

¾ unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
1 teaspoon extract (vanilla, almond, peppermint, etc)
4 cups icing sugar
Pinch of salt
6 Tablespoons milk
Assorted sprinkles, candies, and food colouring, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.

Sift cake flour, baking powder, and salt together into a mixing bowl; set this aside.

In a separate mixing bowl, using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat the butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy, for about three minutes.

While the butter is marrying the sugar, in a small bowl, whisk together egg whites, vanilla extract, and milk until combined. Add this to the butter mixture and beat for approximately two minutes. Reduce speed, slowly add in the flour, and turn the mixer on low speed and mix until incorporated.

Drop the cookie batter onto a prepared cookie sheet using a two-inch scoop with a retractable mechanism two inches apart. Use the bottom of a glass to press down and flatten down each cookie ball. If the dough sticks to the glass, dip the glass into some flour.

Bake cookies for 14 minutes, or until the cookies look puffy with a trace of golden brown around the edges. The cookies will be pale in colour.

Allow to cool completely before frosting.

To prepare frosting:

In a mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar together for five minutes. Add in milk, salt, and extract. Beat to combine.

Frost cookies and decorate with sprinkles, chocolate candies, dragees, etc.

Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for three days.
