Snowy Mountain Cookies
I was so excited to bake these with my mom after coming home from studying abroad in Germany. They remind me of the Swabian Alps I could see from my room there. Be careful not to overheat your white chocolate; it’ll lose that attractive shine. —Stephanie Bouley, North Smithfield, Rhode Island
Total TimePrep: 20 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch. + cooling
Makesabout 7 dozen
- 1-1/4 cups butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups (12 ounces) miniature semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup finely chopped walnuts, optional
- 1 package (12 ounces) white baking chips
- White nonpareils
- Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Add chocolate chips and, if desired, walnuts; mix well. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk; wrap in plastic. Refrigerate until firm enough to roll, about 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 325°. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion of dough to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-in. triangle-shaped cookie cutter. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake until edges begin to brown, 10-12 minutes. Cool on pans 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
- Meanwhile, in a microwave, melt white baking chips; stir until smooth. Dip cookie tops in melted chips; sprinkle with nonpareils. Let stand until set.
