For me personally it is an honor to be part of such a wonderful family and share the love of food that we all have.
To celebrate this event we chose recipes from different contributors that have this family, and believe me it was very difficult to choose among so many delicious and different cuisines.
After reviewing I chose a recipe that is not only easy to make and at the same time you can make this recipe with your children, and my children love to help for that reason I knew this is the perfect recipe. This recipe is originally from my colleague Carla of Chocolate Moosey and I personally recommend it, is simple and very delicious made with ingredients you always have on hand, which is very important.
I hope you enjoy.
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 1/2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1 egg yolk
1 1/4 cups flour
3/4 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
Pinch of salt
1/4 tsp vanilla Sprinkles to decorate
1/4 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips
For the cookies: In a large bowl, beat together butter, both sugars, vanilla, and salt until creamy.
Beat in egg yolk. Gradually beat in flour then stir in chocolate chips.
Remove the dough from the bowl and place it between two sheets of plastic wrap.
Roll the dough flat until it is 1/4-inch thick.
Chill in the refrigerator for at least an hour or until firm.
Line two cookie sheets with either silicone mats or parchment paper.
Remove the dough from the refrigerator and remove the top layer of plastic wrap.
Cut into shapes and place shapes on the cookie sheets.
As you run out of dough to cut, gather up the dough scraps and reroll.
Repeat until all of the dough is used up.
Chill the cookie sheets in the refrigerator while you preheat the oven to 350F.
When the oven is ready, bake the cookies 9-11 minutes or until golden brown.
Let stand for 3 minutes then remove to wire racks to cool completely.
Vanilla buttercream. In a medium bowl, beat together sugar, butter and salt until creamy. Increase the speed to high and beat until creamy, 3-5 minutes.
Add vanilla and beat for another minute.
When the cookies are ready, decorate with sprinkles and buttercream
For the chocolate glaze
Place the chocolate chips in a plastic sandwich bag – do not seal.
Microwave for 45 seconds then knead until smooth. Squeeze all of the chocolate to one corner of the bag then make a small cut to the corner. Pipe the chocolate onto the cookies as desired. Let the chocolate harden before serving.
