Big Momma’s Famous Butter Cookies with Butter Icing


The holidays mean something different to everyone. For the Stuber household, it means holiday baking traditions like Big Momma’s famous Butter Cookies with Butter Icing recipe. This this year we uped the ante and added a secret ingredient… Isopure Unflavored Whey Protein. Not only are these cookies melt-in-your-mouth-delicious (as Big Momma would say), but they are also a great way to sneak in extra protein for a well-balanced diet. Yes, even during the holidays! Isopure Unflavored Whey Protein seamlessly mixes into any recipe that you almost forget it’s there. With 2 ingredients and zero carbs Isopure protein allows you to bake without compromise and still enjoy your favorite holiday recipes (just with an added protein boost!)
