Ingredients

Cookie

3/4 cup
sugar
2/3 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/4 cup
light corn syrup
1
large Land O Lakes® Egg
1 teaspoon
vanilla
2 cups
all-purpose flour
1/4 cup
unsweetened cocoa
1/2 teaspoon
baking powder
1/2 teaspoon
baking soda

Frosting

1/3 cup
all-purpose flour
1/3 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter, very soft
2 tablespoons
powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons
hot water
 
Sugar or decorator sugars

Directions

  1. Combine sugar, 2/3 cup butter, corn syrup, egg and vanilla in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add all remaining cookie ingredients; beat at low speed until well mixed.
  2. Divide dough in half; wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm.
  3. Heat oven to 375°F.
  4. Combine all frosting ingredients in bowl until smooth. Place frosting in plastic resealable food bag. (For best results, place only half of frosting in bag at a time.) Cut very small tip from one corner or fill pastry bag with #3 writing tip.
  5. Roll out dough, one half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated) on lightly floured surface, to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/2-inch cookie cutters (for example, snowflake, circle, diamond, star, etc.). Place 1-inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  6. Decorate cookies with frosting to create snowflake designs. Sprinkle with sugar.
  7. Bake 5-8 minutes or until set. If desired, sprinkle with sugar again while still warm. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack.

Recipe Tips

- For best results, use floured pastry cloth and stockinette-covered rolling pin.

- If frosting is too thick stir in 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon hot water; if too thin, stir in 1 to 2 teaspoons flour.

- To make snowflake ornaments: Carefully punch hole in top of baked cookies with drinking straw immediately after they come out of the oven. Cool; thread 1/8-inch ribbon through hole and tie into bow.

Recipe Comments and Reviews

Rating

This recipe makes beautiful cookies, especially with the sparkle of decorator sugar. They are more time consuming due to the piping of the contrast dough. It is worth every extra minute. The cookie is a delicious crisp chocolate wafer and makes an impressive standout presentation in an array of holiday cookies.
