Gold Medal Flour

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

Steps

  • 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.

  • 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.
