Ingredients

sugar cookie cake
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup valentine sprinkles

vanilla almond frosting
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • pinch of salt
  • extra sprinkles for decorating on top

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9-inch pie dish with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  2. Make the cake: In a large bowl using a hand-held mixer or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and granulated sugar for about 1 minute until it's fluffy and very light in color. Beat in egg, egg yolk, and vanilla. Scrape down the sides as needed.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cornstarch.
  4. Add half the flour mixture into the butter mixture and blend together. Mix on low speed so flour does not go flying. Add in the other half and mix again. The dough will be thick.
  5. Gently fold in the white chocolate chips and 1/2 cup sprinkles using a rubber spatula.
  6. Press the cookie dough evenly into the prepared pie plate. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until very lightly browned on the edges. You want the cookie cake to be soft in the center, so careful not to overbake.
  7. Cool completely on a wire rack at room temperature before frosting.
  8. Make the frosting: With a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium speed until creamy - about 1 minute. Add powdered sugar, cream, vanilla and almond extracts. Mix until combined.
  9. Increase to high speed and beat for 2 minutes. Add more powdered sugar if frosting is too thin or more heavy cream if frosting is too thick. Add a pinch of salt if frosting is too sweet.
  10. Frost the cake as desired (see end of post for ideas) and garnish with extra sprinkles.
