Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

Kids will enjoy decorating their very own chocolate cookie mitten. The white chocolate frosting is luscious and creamy.
Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in bowl; set aside.
Combine 1/2 cup butter and sugar in another bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour mixture; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Divide dough in half; flatten each half into 4-inch disc. Wrap each half in plastic food wrap; refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
Heat oven to 325°F.
Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 3-inch mitten cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 6-8 minutes or just until set. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely.
Place white chocolate into bowl. Microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, 1-2 minutes or until melted. Cool 10 minutes.
Combine 1/2 cup butter and powdered sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed until well mixed. Add cooled white chocolate gradually, beating at high speed until creamy. Tint with food color, if desired. Frost and decorate cookies as desired.

I found the dough easy to make, and easy to roll out. The problem with these arfe they are too soft for decorating. I even tried to over-bake them, with no luck. I am hoping a good drying out on a cookie rack will help.

Once the temperature drops a few degrees, I’m in full-on fall foods mode. Pumpkin bars, apple crisp, cranberry bread…you name it, I’m making it. However, most of it revolves around sweets. Why doesn’t dinner get a fair chance?
