I watched The Pioneer Woman demonstrate these cookies on her TV show last year, probably about a year ago. She certainly had a way of making them appear to be simply done.:-) I didn't have a lot of trouble with them, either.
|Cooling on the rack.|
2 sticks butter, softened slightly
1 cup powdered sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 ounces white almond bark
4 ounces chocolate almond bark
Assorted candies, sugars, etc. for toppings; crush candies to create small pieces.
- Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla; mix to combine. Add flour, cocoa, and salt, mixing until dough comes together. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate two hours. Roll and cut with rectangle shaped cutter. (I used a diamond-shaped cutter).
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- Bake cookies on ungreased cookie sheet for 7-9 minutes. Let set on pan for a couple of minutes, then remove to rack for cooling.
- When cookies are cool, melt almond bark, working with one flavor at a time. When melted, dip part of cookie into bark, then into the topping. Place on parchment-lined tray until cool.
- Size/shape of cookie cutter will determine number of cookies you have.
An announcement is coming in the next post! I hope you will return to see who wins the giveaway.
