Winter Mint Cookies

I had planned on making snowflake-shaped cookies with piped on royal icing decorations. Then in my browsing on Foodbuzz I came across a wonderful tutorial for glacé icing. Like the author, I've struggled with flooding royal icing (it's so messy and never as easy as Martha Stewart can make it look). I couldn't help but love her beautifully decorated cookies. For my own cookies, I wanted to a generous amount of icing so I added some melted chocolate to the cutout cookie dough to help it stand up to a heavy dose of mint icing.

Bleeding Espresso

I have many fond memories of leaving a plate of cookies for Santa (and carrots for Rudolph!) , and there was always at least two chocolate chip cookies on there–they were Santa’s favorite, I was told. My dad would film the whole thing with an old-fashioned video camera, a ridiculously bright light shining in my smiling eyes as I set the plate and a glass of milk on the bottom of the fireplace. A couple years ago, my brother and sister-in-law had these movies put on DVDs, and what a great gift that was!

I wish I knew how to put them online so you could see clips of mini-me and the cookies, but you’ll just have to imagine it. And now without further ado, the recipe direct from my mom’s kitchen: Sara Bernard i langpanne! Nå har jeg startet med julebaksten.

Dark Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Toasted Almond Cream Recipe : Alexandra Guarnaschelli

Make the pies: In a medium heatproof bowl, combine the unsweetened chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate and butter. Fill a pot (relatively the same size as the bowl) about 1/3 full with water and place it over medium heat. When the water simmers, place the bowl of chocolate and butter over the simmering water and lower the heat. You want to melt the chocolate and butter gently together, stirring and scraping the sides (to avoid scorching). In another bowl, whisk together the sugar, eggs, vanilla, cinnamon and lemon zest. Separately, sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt. When the chocolate and butter is melted, remove the bowl from the heat; stir to assure it's completely mixed and transfer to another medium bowl.
