Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups champagne
  • cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ cup white granulated sugar
  • cup unsalted butter, softened

Champagne Icing

  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 6 tablespoons champagne

Instructions
 

  • In a medium saucepan over high heat bring champagne to a boil 15 minutes or until reduced to about a ½ cup. Chill until cold to the touch. Transfer to a measuring up.
  • Preheat oven to 375° F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk flour and baking powder together. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add ½ cup of champagne reduction. Stir until just combined.
  • Gradually add flour mixture and stir until a very soft dough forms.
  • Using a cookie dough scoop or a teaspoon and the palm of your hands, make 1" dough balls. Drop onto cookie sheets.
  • Bake 12 minutes or until just set. Allow to cool 1 minute. Transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely before icing.

Champagne Icing

  • Mix icing ingredients until smooth. Add optional food coloring.

Notes

Tips

Allow champagne reduction needs to cool completely before adding it to the dough.

To Ice

Dip cooled cookies into icing, then hold at a slight angle to allow excess icing to run off. Let icing set up for a couple of minutes before decorating with edible pearls, glitter, or sprinkles. Let set up completely before serving.
Pipe on using a piping bag and tip.
Spread on using a spreader.
