Ingredients

Cookie

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

3 ounces cream cheese, softened

3/4 cup sugar

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 teaspoon peppermint flavoring

3 cups all-purpose flour

Glaze

1 (12-ounce) package (2 cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 tablespoons shortening

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine all cookie ingredients except flour in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  2. STEP 2

    Divide dough in half; wrap each half in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours or overnight until chilled.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  4. STEP 4

    Roll out dough, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out cookies with 2 1/2-inch heart-shaped cutter. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 7-10 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack; cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Melt chocolate and shortening in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, 4-6 minutes or until melted. Dip half of each heart into chocolate. Place onto waxed paper-lined cookie sheets; refrigerate until chocolate is firm. Store refrigerated.

Just made these and they are tasteless. I think it needs salt! Very disappointing. Baked beautifully, but should taste as good as it looks.

I made these for Valentine's and then again for a bridal shower. Cut them with a small heart cutter. Used Candy melts and dipped them half and half pink and white or chocolate and white. Decorated with a line of down the center where colors changed. Great tasting and were a hit. I used vanilla flavoring instead of peppermint.
