Want to know how to use Leftover Frosting? Read and learn….

(To my horror) I found out that a friend of mine THROWS AWAY  leftover frosting.

BLASPHEMY!!!

Got leftover frosting? There are a number of things you can do with it.

How to Use Leftover Frosting

1. Sit down in the corner and eat it.
2. Put it in the fridge, and sneak a spoonful every now and then when things get a little rough.
3. Save it in the fridge until you make sugar cookies, and then spread it on the cookies.

and best of all…..

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.

My reasoning is this… buttercream frosting is butter, sugar and flavoring (like chocolate)…. and since the basic cookie recipe generally starts with … “cream butter and sugar”… I figure, add some other stuff, and you have cookies.

It works.

Still uncertain? Check out the Step By Step Photos below….

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.

    1. If you only have 1/2 cup of frosting, it might be best to just smear it between 2 cookies or graham crackers for an extra treat. It really isn’t enough to start something new.

  1. Will this recipe work for the stabilized chocolate whipped cream frosting on prairie homestead.com? which has whipped heavy cream, cocoa powder, powdered sugar,salt, melted chocolate chips,& knox gelatin? thank you

  2. OMG These are delicious. I almost never have any leftover frosting but I ended up with half a homemade batch of special dark chocolate frosting. So I went looking and found your website. I only used one egg as well and followed the directions exactly. Who knew you could make cookies. They didn’t even last an hour! Thank you!

  3. I just made these with some leftover vanilla frosting. These are THE BEST sugar cookies I have ever made. I am going to make frosting all of the time now just so I can make these cookies!
