  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 to 7 milk chocolate candy bars (1.55 ounces each), broken into 2-section pieces
  • 2-1/2 cups vanilla frosting
  • White and light blue paste food coloring


  1. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Divide dough in half; shape each into a disk. Cover and refrigerate until firm enough to roll, at least 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion of dough to 1/8-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 4-in. dreidel cutter. Place half the cutouts 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets; top with candy bar pieces. Top with remaining cutouts, pinching edges to seal.
  3. Bake until bottoms are light brown, 10-12 minutes. Remove from pans to wire racks; cool completely.
  4. Tint 2/3 cup frosting light blue. Spread remaining white frosting over cookies. Pipe 1 Hebrew letter on each cookie.
