Ingredients

3/4 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/2 cup
sugar
1/2 cup
firmly packed brown sugar
1
large Land O Lakes® Egg
1 teaspoon
vanilla
2 cups
all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons
baking powder
1/2 teaspoon
salt
3 tablespoons
unsweetened cocoa
1 cup
swirled chocolate baking chips*
1 cup
whole cashews
 
*Substitute chocolate, white chocolate, mint or caramel baking chips.

Directions

  1. Combine butter, sugar and brown sugar in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.
  2. Divide dough into thirds. Add cocoa to one-third of dough; mix well. Divide chocolate dough in half. Roll each half into 10-inch log; set aside.
  3. Roll out each remaining white dough amount into a 10x4-inch rectangle. Place 1 chocolate log onto each white dough rectangle. Roll white dough completely around chocolate log, leaving ends uncovered. Wrap dough logs in plastic food wrap; refrigerate at least 2 hours until firm.
  4. Heat oven to 350°F.
  5. Cut logs into 1/4-inch slices with sharp knife. Create owls by placing 2 slices onto ungreased cookie sheet, side-by-side with edges touching. Using fingers, pinch dough to form ear at top of each circle. Place 1 baking chip in center of each chocolate section for eyes. Press 1 cashew into bottom center of each cookie to create beak. Repeat with remaining dough slices.
  6. Bake 9-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheet 5 minutes; remove to cooling rack.

Recipe Tips

You can bake dough slices individually for a fun, circular vanilla and chocolate cookie.

I made this recipe and it turned out so cute! I also used almonds and cheerios for noses and also white chocolate chips for eyes. It was so much much and such a hit!
