Learn How it Works...
1 1/2 cups Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs, separated, reserve 1 egg white
2 teaspoon vanilla
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
24 round chocolate candy wafers
1 reserved egg white
1 tablespoon water
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons light corn syrup
4 teaspoons water
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
Red and green decorator sugars, sprinkles and/or candies
48 lollipop sticks
Combine butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg yolks and vanilla in bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add flour, baking powder and salt; beat at low speed until well mixed.
Divide dough in half. Shape each half into a ball; flatten slightly. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; refrigerate at least 2 hours until firm.
Cut candies in half crosswise to make 48 pieces; set aside.
Heat oven to 350°F.
Roll out dough, one-half at a time, on lightly floured surface (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with 2-inch round cookie cutter. Place half of cookies,4 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Place egg white and 1 tablespoon water in bowl; beat with whisk until frothy. Press 1 lollipop stick into middle of each cookie on cookie sheet. Top with 1 piece candy. Brush egg white mixture over 1 side of remaining cookies; place over candy, egg wash-side down. Press dough gently around candy; crimp outer edges together to seal, using tines of fork.
Bake 10-13 minutes or until edges are just beginning to brown. Using spatula, remove to cooling racks. Cool completely.
Combine powdered sugar, corn syrup, 4 teaspoons water and almond extract in bowl; beat at medium speed until well mixed. Spread glaze over cookies. Decorate with decorator sugars, sprinkles or candies. Let stand until glaze is set.
Look for lollipop sticks at your local craft store.
