Chocolate stars are the sweet surprise inside tender, bite-sized cookies coated with powdered sugar.

Ingredients

Cookies

1
cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2
cup powdered sugar
1
teaspoon vanilla
2
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1/4
teaspoon salt
3/4
cup finely chopped walnuts
48
milk chocolate stars (from 14-oz bag)

Sugar Coating

1
cup powdered sugar
1
tablespoon red sugar
1
tablespoon green sugar

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 400°F. In large bowl, beat butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar and the vanilla with electric mixture on medium speed until well mixed. On low speed, beat in flour, salt and walnuts.
  • 2 For each cookie, shape scant measuring tablespoonfuls dough around chocolate star to make 1-inch ball; place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 3 Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until set and bottoms begin to turn golden brown. Meanwhile, in small bowl, mix sugar coating ingredients.
  • 4 Immediately remove cookies from cookie sheets; roll in sugar coating. Cool completely on cooling racks, about 30 minutes. Roll in sugar coating again.
Tips  

For cookies with more dazzle, use coarse red and green sparkling sugars instead of the colored granulated sugars.

Chopped pecans can be used instead of the walnuts.
