Ingredients

Cookie

1 3/4 cups
all-purpose flour
1/2 cup
unsweetened cocoa
1 1/4 teaspoons
baking powder
1/4 teaspoon
salt
1 1/4 cups
powdered sugar
3/4 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1
large Land O Lakes® Egg
1 teaspoon
vanilla

Coating

6 ounces
vanilla candy coating (almond bark)

Decorations

Directions

  1. Combine flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in medium bowl until well mixed; set aside.
  2. Combine powdered sugar and butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; gradually add flour mixture. Beat until well mixed.
  3. Divide dough into thirds. Shape each into a ball; flatten slightly. Wrap each in plastic food wrap; refrigerate until firm (at least 2 hours or overnight).
  4. Heat oven to 375°F. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface (one-third at a time, keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 2-inch square cookie cutter. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until set. Remove to wire cooling rack. Cool completely.
  5. Place candy coating in small microwave-safe bowl; microwave on HIGH (100% power), stirring often, for 60 to 90 seconds. Stir until smooth.
  6. Place waxed paper onto flat surface. Dip each cookie into warm coating; shake off excess. Place onto waxed paper. Immediately decorate as desired. Let stand until coating is set.
  7. Store between layers of waxed paper in loosely covered container.
