Valentine Day Treat!
1 recipe Butter Cookie Dough (read below)
3 or 4 drops red food coloring
1 pint ice cream or frozen yogurt, any flavor
(Its good to have a heart cookie cutter for this one!!)
Prepare cookie dough; mix in food coloring. Cover, refrigerate until firm (about 4 hours or overnight).
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Roll dough on floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out cookies using cookie cutter. Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8 to 20 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned around edges. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
Remove ice cream from freezer; let stand at room temperature to soften slightly, about 10 minutes. Spread 4 to 5 tablespoons ice cream onto flat side of half of cookies. Place remaining cookies, flat side down, on ice cream.
Press cookies together lightly. Wrap each sandwich in foil; freeze until firm, about 2 hours or overnight.
Makes 6 to 8 cookie sandwiches.
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt
Combine butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and egg yolk in medium bowl. Add flour, baking powder and salt; mix well. Cover; refrigerate about 4 hours or until firm.
