- 1.5 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
- Yum Earth Lollipops
- Heart cookie cutter
- Mini Mickey Mouse cookie cutter
- Non-stick foil (this is a must!)
Pre-heat oven at 350 degrees.
In a small bowl mix flour, salt and baking powder. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and cocoa. Gradually combine mixtures until smooth.
Cover dough and refrigerated for at least 20 minutes.
The trick to these cookies is to roll the dough very thin. Transporting the cookies to the cookie sheet is difficult. If you have trouble, cut out the cookies directly on the foil-covered cookie sheet.
Fill each Mickey Head with crushed candy. One crushed lollipop fills two cookie centers.
Bake for 5 minutes in the oven, or lightly crisp.
Let stand on cookie sheet about 2 minutes before removing so candies have a chance to harden. If you use non-stick foil, they will peel right up. If not, well you were warned!
