Ingredients

Cookie

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup finely chopped salted peanuts
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Chocolate Dip

1 cup semi-sweet real chocolate chips (We recommend NESTLÈ® TOLL HOUSE® Morsels)
2 teaspoons shortening

Directions

Combine brown sugar and butter in large mixer bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy (1 to 2 minutes). Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, peanuts, baking power and baking soda. Reduce speed to low; beat until well mixed and dough forms (4 to 6 minutes).

Divide dough in half. Shape each half into 6-inch roll on lightly floured surface; wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.

Heat oven to 350°F. Cut rolls into 1/4-inch slices with sharp knife. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely.

Meanwhile, melt chocolate chips and shortening in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth (2 to 4 minutes). Dip half of each cookie into chocolate or drizzle over cookies. Let stand on waxed paper until chocolate is set.

TIP: Store cookies between sheets of waxed paper in a loosely covered container.

Cranberry Pavlova – A New Thanksgiving Dessert
November 20, 2014 by Mallory

I’m something of a traditionalist. My family tends to gravitate toward the same desserts every year for our holiday celebrations – sugar cookies, something pumpkin, and something with chocolate…but this year, I was feeling like trying something new.
