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


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

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 400°F.

  2. STEP 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. STEP 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. STEP 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.

Tip #1

- 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.
