Chocolate Snowflake Crisps


Chocolate Snowflake Crisps

3/4 cup sugar
2/3 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, softened
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

Baked-on Frosting
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup LAND O LAKES® Butter, very soft
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons hot water
Sugar or decorator sugars

In large mixer bowl combine sugar, butter, corn syrup, egg and vanilla. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy (1 to 2 minutes). Reduce speed to low; add all remaining cookie ingredients. Beat until well mixed (1 to 2 minutes). Divide dough in half; wrap in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 2 days.

Heat oven to 375°. In small bowl stir together all baked-on frosting ingredients until smooth. Place frosting in plastic resealable food bag. (For best results place only half of the frosting in the bag at a time.) Cut very small tip from one corner or fill pastry bag with #3 writing tip.

On lightly floured surface roll out dough, one half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 2 1 /2-inch cookie cutters (for example, snowflake, circle, diamond, star, etc.). Place 1-inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Decorate cookies with frosting to create snowflake designs. Sprinkle with sugars.

Bake for 5 to 8 minutes or until set. If desired, sprinkle with sugar again while still warm. Cool 1 minute before removing from cookie sheets. Cool completely. (7 dozen cookies)

Tip: To make snowflake ornaments: Carefully punch hole in top of baked cookies with drinking straw immediately after they come out of the oven. Cool; thread 1/8-inch ribbon through hole and tie into bow. Storage: Store in airtight containers between sheets of waxed paper up to 5 days or freeze in airtight container up to 3 months.
