I found a recipe for sugar cookies that calls for 3 tbsp of cream. Ok, here is the dumb question, what kind of cream, heavy whipping cream or is there some other kind of cream?
Next question, can I use Indydebi's Crisco-Based Buttercream Icing to decorate the cookies. I was planning on making her buttercream icing -today anyway for my daughter's b-day cake this weekend and since I had to make it anyway I was hoping I could use on the sugar cookies that I have to make for a play date tomorrow.
I can't use RI for the cookie decorations because my daughter is allergic to egg whites.

Not a dumb question. I use pasteurized heavy cream. There is a slight difference in the % of fat. Whipping cream has additives to make it more stable when whipped. Either should work just fine. The big difference comes when you are whipping them.

You can most definitely ice cookies with buttercream. You won't be able to stack them, but they will be yummy.

Have you tried Toba Garrett's Glace' Icing?
