Making cookies: Sift flour, cornflour, baking powder, soda, and salt. Set aside.

Step 1 


Beat confectioners' sugar and butter until light and crumbly with a medium-speed hand mixer. Fully incorporate the egg, sour cream, and vanilla.

Step 2

Mix the flour mixture into the butter mixture on low speed until barely combined. Stir the dough several times with a spatula to finish. Cover and chill for an hour.

Step 3

Heat the oven to 350°F. Cover baking sheets with parchment or silicone. Flour a clean surface and roll the chilled dough to 1/4-inch thickness.

Step 4

Cut 20 cookies with a 3-inch round cutter. Continue rerolling until all dough is cut. On prepared pans, place cookies.

Step 5

Bake one pan at a time for 10–12 minutes. Cookie colour will be light. Cool the pans on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Then remove the cookies from the pan to cool on a rack.

Step 6

FOR FROSTING: Beat butter on medium speed for 3–5 minutes in a stand mixer bowl with the paddle attachment. Light-colored butter.

Step 7

Add vanilla, salt, and half the cream. Add the confectioners' sugar and food colouring (if using) gradually, then the remaining cream.

Step 8

Beat the frosting for 5 more minutes. For best consistency, press the frosting around the bowl sides with a spatula to release air bubbles.

Step 9

Leave a small edge of the cooled cookies visible when spreading or piping frosting. Add sprinkles.
