This was another yummy cookie that I tried for Christmas this year. They were a lot of work, especially when you don't take the shortcut of buying premade sugar cookie dough and they didn't turn out as pretty as I would like them to have. They were pretty tasty though and went very fast when I brought them out to all our events that we were going to over Christmas.
Sugar Cookie Truffles
(recipe found on pinterest via munchkinmunchies.com)
1 16 ounces package of sugar cookie dough - I used this recipe instead.
8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
4 ounces white melting chocolate OR 1 cup white chips
1 tablespoon shortening
sprinkles for garnish
Bake cookies according to package directions...BUT baking until cookies are crisp, but NOT burned. Cool cookies completely on wire rack before moving on to the next step.
Line baking sheet with wax paper. Crumble the cookies into the food processor. Process until the cookies are a fine crumb. Add the cream cheese and process until the mixture starts to hold together. Roll mixture into 1" balls, placing on prepared baking sheet and chill in refrigerator for an hour. Melt white chocolate and shortening on medium power in 30 second intervals until just melted, stirring well after each interval. Dip each ball into white chocolate with a fork tapping off the excess. Return to baking sheet to set. Sprinkle with sprinkles while white chocolate is still wet.
