Truffle-Iced Sugar Cookies

Cooking Light DECEMBER 2000

  • Yield: 2 dozen (serving size: 1 cookie)

Ingredients

  • Cookies:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg white
  • Cooking spray
  • Icing:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon fat-free milk
  • 1/2 ounce semisweet chocolate
  • 1/2 ounce white chocolate

Preparation

To prepare cookies, lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl, stirring well with a whisk; set aside. Beat butter with a mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Gradually add granulated sugar, beating until well-blended. Add vanilla and egg white; beat well. Add flour mixture; stir until well-blended. Turn dough out onto wax paper; shape into a 6-inch log. Wrap log in wax paper; freeze for 3 hours or until very firm.

Preheat oven to 350°.

Cut log into 24 (1/4-inch) slices; place the slices 1 inch apart on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove the cookies from pan, and cool on wire racks.

To prepare the icing, combine powdered sugar and cocoa in a small bowl; stir well. Add milk; stir well. Spread over cookies to within 1/4 inch of edges. Place semisweet and white chocolate in separate heavy-duty zip-top plastic bags; seal. Microwave chocolates at high for 1 minute or until chocolates are soft. Knead the bags until smooth. Snip a tiny hole in corner of bags; drizzle chocolates over the frosted cookies so that they resemble truffles.
