4. Make Leftover Frosting Cookies!
Any Buttercream Frosting will do.
Quick, easy and delicious. These cookies will use up the leftovers in a very delicious way.

Don’t Throw Away Leftover Frosting!
Buttercream frosting will keep in an airtight container for a few weeks in the refrigerator. Before using it, let it sit on the counter to come to room temperature.
You can also freeze buttercream… be sure the container is airtight, label it! and it will be good for 2 months.
