Title: Rosa’s Mint Chocolate Drizzle Cookies (age 11)
Ingredients:
Rosa is in sixth grade and they participated in our first contest last year as well. They are excited to offer this new recipe for you to try! Cookies: ½ c. cup granulated sugar 1 c. butter or margarine, softened 1 tsp. vanilla 1 egg yolk 1 ½ c. all-purpose flour ¼ c. unsweetened baking cocoa Mint Filling: ¼ c. butter, softened 1 c. powdered sugar 1 T. milk ¼ tsp. peppermint extract 2 drops green food coloring Drizzle: ¼ c. semisweet chocolate chips ¼ tsp. butter
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375°F (if using a dark or nonstick cookie sheet, heat oven to 350°F). In a large bowl, beat granulated sugar, 1 cup butter and the vanilla with an electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Beat in the egg yolk until smooth. Beat in flour and cocoa. Shape dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into 1-inch balls. On a cookie sheet covered in parchment, place the balls 1 inch apart. With your index finger or thumb, make an indentation in the center of each ball. Bake cookies for 7–9 minutes or until set. Immediately remove the cookies from the cookie sheet to a wire rack. Cool the cookies completely, for about 30 minutes. In a small bowl, beat ¼ c. butter and the powdered sugar on low speed until smooth. Beat in the milk, peppermint extract and enough food coloring for the mint green color you like. Spoon about 1/2 teaspoon filling into each cookie. We used a frosting bag with a star tip and made spirals. Place the chocolate chips and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on High for 10-second intervals until softened. Stir to mix. Fill a small plastic bag with the chocolate glaze and cut a tiny hole in the corner of the bag. Squeeze the bag to drizzle chocolate over the cookies. We used a frosting bag with a tip that has a tiny hole. Let the cookies sit for about 1 hour or until the filling and the chocolate is set.
