These caramel and nut filled cookies that are shaped to look like tiny treasure desserts are perfect for festive celebrations!
cup powdered sugar
cup butter or margarine, softened
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
cup finely chopped nuts
caramels, each cut into 4 pieces
Additional powdered sugar
Heat oven to 400°F. In large bowl, mix 1/2 cup powdered sugar, the butter and vanilla. Stir in flour, nuts and salt until dough holds together.
Mold portions of dough around pieces of caramels to form 1-inch balls. On ungreased cookie sheet, place balls about 1 inch apart.
Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until set but not brown. In small bowl, place additional powdered sugar. Roll cookies in powdered sugar while warm. Cool completely on wire rack, about 30 minutes. Roll in powdered sugar again.
Ahoy Matey! Vary the treasures in your cookies! Instead of caramels, try these enticing ideas:
• Candied cherries
• Malted milk balls
• Chocolate-covered raisins
• Gummy fruit candies
