Our first cookie is a cookie I discovered on a recent trip during the holidays to Germany. This one particular cookie I just kept going back to over and over and over again. I was like, what is this, and basically it is a What is a sugar cookie with a candy in the center, like a chocolate. And it's super easy to make. In this mixer, I'm going to put together two ingredients, one egg yolk and also some butter at room temperature. And I'm just gonna mix it on medium speed for just a couple of minutes. So in our bowl we have sugar, salt, all-purpose flour. And then I'm gonna add some cocoa powder. Basically, I'm just adding the dry to the butter and egg. And then again, we're just gonna mix that until that's incorporated. I got a piece of Saran Wrap right here, and I'm just gonna form a little ball, and just chill it for about an hour. The favorite part of the cookie, for me at least, is working with the candies. I think we have some 3 Musketeers. We have some Mounds and we have, I think those are your favorite. Well, these are my favorite. Yeah. Peanut butter cups. And we're just going to cut them in half and you're just going to use the heat of your hands to kind of melt the chocolate and make a complete ball. So now that I've just rolled this out, you want it to be about a quarter of an inch thick and I'm just going to cut out The dough. What I'm gonna do here is just envelope the filling with the cookie dough. The cookies have been baked, they're cooled off. As you can see I'm just gonna pour over here, and these I will pour over with white chocolate. You can leave them as simple as they are, or you can have some crushed nuts, or sanding sugar, nonpareils. There you have it. Candy cookies from Germany, huh? Yep, they're the best.
