Cookie

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 tablespoon vanilla

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3/4 cup powdered sugar

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine 1 cup butter, sugar, brown sugar, egg and vanilla in bowl. Beat at medium speed, until creamy. Add flour, baking powder and cinnamon; beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed.

  2. STEP 2

    Divide dough in half. Shape each half into ball; flatten slightly. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; refrigerate at least 2 hours until firm.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 400°F.

  4. STEP 4

    Roll out dough on lightly floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8- to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with 3-inch star-shaped cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 5-7 minutes or until points just begin to turn lightly brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to cooking rack.

  5. STEP 5

    Place white chocolate in bowl. Microwave, stirring every 30 seconds, 1-2 minutes or until melted. Cool about 10 minutes to room temperature.

  6. STEP 6

    Combine 1/2 cup butter and powdered sugar in bowl. Beat at low speed until well mixed. Add cooled white chocolate. Continue beating until very creamy.

  7. STEP 7

    Frost cookies. Make web design by placing dot of black decorator gel in center. Pipe orange gel circle around black dot and black gel circle around orange circle. Using toothpick, drag decorator gel from center of black dot toward each star point and indentations between points. Wipe off toothpick as necessary.

  8. STEP 8

    Store in single layers in loosely covered container.

Tip #1

- Decorator gel is available in many colors and sold in the baking aisle of supermarkets.

Tip #2

- Watch cookies closely when baking. The star points will brown quickly. Be careful when removing the cookies from the cookie sheets so they don’t break.

Tip #3

- You can use a 2- to 3-inch round cookie cutter in place of star cookie cutter.
