Bready or Not Guest Recipe: DETOX IN LETTERS Sugar Cookies with Avocado Frosting by Cheryl Low

Cheryl Low’s Crowns & Ash series takes place in a fantasy world where magic is a drug steeping in every cup of tea and baked into the cakes eaten at every meal. In this recipe inspired by her world, sugar cookies are frosted with a blend of powdered sugar and avocado, and topped with sparkly cake dust.



Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla.

In a separate bowl mix flour, baking powder and salt.

Add flour mixture to butter mixture and then chill at least 1 hour in the refrigerator.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Roll out dough onto a floured surface and cut into cookie shapes.

Bake 8-10 minutes. I take them out before the edges brown so they’ll be super soft. Let cool.

Mash avocado and mix with powdered sugar into a frosting.

Frost cookies. Let the frosting harden and then dust with glittery cake dust so you can pretend their coated in magic pixie dust.
