Sugar Cookies with Strawberry cream cheese Icing

So, I wanted a fun dessert that I could whip up the night before and would go well with strawberries we had just picked at a local farm…and I landed on sugar cookies from Lil Luna…they tasted a little crisp the night we made them, but perfectly soft by the next day. The trouble was I didn’t have any cream cheese for their icing recipe…but I did have strawberry cream cheese spread (for bagels)! Think The Best Mistake Ever by Richard Scarry…and an added bonus of not needing to use food coloring, ha! So, the recipe is
1/2 cup butter (softened, if you have time)
1/2 cup strawberry cream cheese spread
Pinch o salt
1/2 tsp almond extract
1/2 tsp vanilla
Then, mix in 4 cups powdered sugar
…I only had 2 cups powdered sugar on hand, so I cut the butter amount in half and kept everything else the same

***Also good on Chocolate Velvet Beet Cupcakes from Crayons and Croissants
