It is probably pretty clear how much I love raw cookie dough at this point. Knowing that normal raw dough is bad for you, I have come up with a pretty basic formula for safety: take any dough you like, substitue the eggs with 1/2 cup of milk (or soy milk), and make sure it stays fairly cold at all times.
Using this idea, I managed to come up with a new recipe featuring raw sugar cookie dough. My choice was seasonally motivated…nothing says Christmas like sugar cookies!
Sugar Cookie Kisses
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup milk
1 bag of white chocolate chips
5-6 candy canes (crushed)
1 package milk chocolate candy coating
1-2 tsp shortening
1 circle fondant or cookie cutter
Wax Paper & 2-3 cookie sheets
1. Begin by creaming the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar on a low-speed.
2. Add the milk and vanilla, and continue mixing. Once everything is nice and fluffy, add the salt, and then add the flour slowly…1/2 cup at a time.
3. After all the ingredients are well-mixed, add the package of white chips.
4. Chill your dough for about an hour. Once the dough is at a good consistency, roll the dough out to about 1/4 inch thickness with a rolling pin. Use the fondant cutter to cut out small circles (you should get at least 75 treats).
5. Chill them again for about 1 hour.
6. Using the rolling pin, crush the candy canes into small bits.
6. Melt the chocolate over low heat. Add about 1 tsp. of shortening if the chocolate begins to scorch. Stir the chocolate constantly.
7. Remove the chilled treats from the freezer and dip them individually in the chocolate with a normal metal kitchen fork. Gently tap the fork on the side of the pan, and allow the extra chocolate to fall off.
8. While the chocolate is still hot, sprinkle the candy cane bits on top.
I chose to make these treats cookie-shaped, instead of spherical, to make them more like traditional sugar cookies. I like that they are smaller and more bite-sized, and the recipe really yields a lot! They are fun, festive, and won’t last long!
I hope these treats make your holiday sweeter!
