Homemade Milano Cookies – 23 cookies

Here’s a great Christmas cookie idea!

All ingredients available at The Country Cupboard except unsalted butter.

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 large egg
4 ounces semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped OR semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/4 teaspoon pure peppermint extract
3-4 teaspoons of water
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees, with racks in upper and lower thirds. In a small bowl, whisk together flour and salt. In a medium bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and granulated sugar on high, scraping down bowl as needed, until light and fluffy, 4 minutes.
  2. Add vanilla and beat to combine. Add egg and beat to combine. With mixer on low, gradually add flour mixture and beat just until combined. Transfer dough to a quart-size zip-top bag; with scissors, snip a 3/4-inch hole in one corner. Pipe 54 cookies (3/4 by 2 inches), 1/2 inch apart, onto two parchment-lined baking sheets*.
  3. Chill until firm, 20 minutes.
  4. Bake until cookies are light golden at edges, about 15 minutes, rotating sheets halfway through. Transfer immediately to wire racks and let cool.
  5. Place chocolate in a medium heatproof bowl set over (not in) a saucepan of simmering water. Stir until melted, 2 minutes. Remove bowl from pan. **
  6. In another medium bowl, whisk together confectioners’ sugar, peppermint extract, and 3- 4 teaspoons water. With a small offset spatula or table knife, spread chocolate on flat side of half the cookies and mint glaze on the other half. Sandwich cookie halves together.

*If your dough is way too thick to pipe, hand rolling them.

** Save your extra chocolate and serve on the side for dipping!
