Homemade Milano Cookies
Make your favorite mint and chocolate sandwich cookie from scratch at home!
- 1¼ Cup All purpose flour
- ½ Teaspoon Coarse salt
- ½ Cup Unsalted butter
- ⅔ Cup Granulated sugar
- 1 Teaspoon Pure vanilla extract
- 1 Large egg
- 4 Ounces Semi sweet chocolate coarsely chopped
- ¾ Cup Confectioners sugar
- ¼ Teaspoon pure peppermint extract
- 3 Teaspoons Water
Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. 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.
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. * my dough was way too thick to pipe, so I ended up hand rolling them.
Bake for 15 minutes rotating half way through.
Mix confectioners sugar with peppermint and water
Melt chocolate in a double boiler or microwave, then add chocolate to one cookie and peppermint mixture to another,
And make into a delicious chocolate peppermint sandwich cookie!
