Ingredients
  • FOR THE COOKIE:
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ⅓ cup white sugar
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • 2¾ cups + 1 T. cake flour (or 2½ cups all-purpose flour)
  • 2½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 2½ teaspoons cream of tarter
  • FOR THE FROSTING:
  • 1 8 ounce package cream cheese
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ⅛ teaspoon almond extract (can use vanilla if you prefer)
  • 3 cups powdered sugar (more or less depending on preference)
  • FOR THE TOPPINGS:
  • 8 ounces of fresh blueberries
  • 24 ounces of fresh strawberries
  • ¼ cup white chocolate chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees. Spray a jelly roll pan (half sheet - 13"x18") with cooking spray and line with parchment paper. (This makes for easy cutting and removal. If you don't have parchment just grease well).
  2. Cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the egg, vanilla & almond extract. Beating well.
  3. Add the flour, baking soda and cream of tarter and mix until blended.
  4. With lightly flour hands, pat the dough into the cookie sheet. Spread it out even leaving about ½" space around the side (the dough will spread when it cooks).
  5. Bake for 10-15 minutes. Let cool then frost.
  6. FOR THE FROSTING:
  7. Beat the cream cheese and butter in a medium sized bowl until creamy. Add the almond extract & powdered sugar (start with 2 cups and add until you reach the sweetness you prefer) and beat till smooth. Spread over cooled cookie.
  8. Cover & chill the frosted cookie until cold.
  9. FOR THE TOPPINGS:
  10. Cut the tops off of the strawberries and slice in half.
  11. Place the blueberries in the top left corner in a square then stager the white chocolate chips to look like stars. Place the strawberries in horizontal rows, starting at the top. I did 5 rows.
Notes
I made this recipe with cake flour (you can find it in the baking isle in a pink box). Gives it a finer texture and I think tastes a little different. If you don't have it, regular all-purpose flour is fine too. Just use 2½ cups instead.
