1/2 cup butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
1-2 T whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla
Beat butter and gradually add powered sugar until it begins to combine. Add vanilla and then whipping cream a little at a time. Beat on high speed until it begins to get fluffy.
Once cookies are cooled completely, line them up to make matches that are about the same size.
