Recipe for Homemade Milano Cookies 2010-02-08 10:02:10

Ingredients

  1. 12 tablespoons butter, softened
    2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
    7/8 cup egg whites (from about 6 eggs)
    2 tablespoons vanilla extract
    zest of one lemon
    1 1/2 cups flour
  1. Cookie filling
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    8 ounces dark chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Cream the butter with a paddle attachment then mix in the sugar.
  2. Add the egg whites gradually and then mix in the vanilla and lemon zest.
  3. Add the flour and mix until just incorporated.
  4. With a small (1/4-inch) plain tip, pipe 1-inch sections of batter onto a parchment-lined sheet pan, spacing them 2 inches apart as they spread. Or spray a muffin lined tin with oil and pipe a thin amount of cookie into each muffin tin. Just cover the bottom of a muffin cup.
  5. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 minutes or until light golden brown around the edges. Let cool on the pan.
  6. Cookie Filling: In a small saucepan over medium flame, scald cream.
  7. Pour hot cream over chocolate in a bowl. Whisk to melt chocolate and blend well.
  8. Set aside to cool (the mixture will thicken as it cools). Spread a thin amount of the filling onto the flat side of a cookie while the filling is still soft and press the flat side of a second cookie on top. Repeat with the remainder of the cookies.

Makes 3 dozen cookies.
