Ingredients

Cookie

3/4 cup
sugar
1/2 cup
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1
large Land O Lakes® Egg
1 1/2 cups
all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon
cream of tartar
1/2 teaspoon
baking soda
1/2 teaspoon
vanilla
1/8 teaspoon
lemon flavoring

Glaze

2 1/2 cups
powdered sugar
1 tablespoon
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
2 tablespoons
light corn syrup
3 to 4 tablespoons
milk
1 ounce
bittersweet or semi-sweet baking chocolate, melted

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400°F.
  2. Combine sugar, butter and egg in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add all remaining cookie ingredients; beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed and dough forms.
  3. Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 6-9 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely.
  4. Combine all glaze ingredients in bowl except milk and chocolate. Beat at medium speed, adding enough milk for desired glazing consistency. Remove 1 cup glaze to another bowl. Add melted chocolate; mix well. Frost half of each cookie with white frosting and half with chocolate. Place onto waxed paper. (If chocolate glaze begins to harden, heat in microwave 5-10 seconds.) Let stand 1 hour or until set.

Recipe Tips

- Use a brush to glaze all cookies with one color frosting first, then the other color.

These cookies were delicious. I frosted both sides, which helped to keep them moist. They disappeared very quickly, but if I make them again I'll add two tablespoons of unsweetened chocolate to the frosting instead of one and frost them entirely in chocolate.
