Ingredients

1 cupsoftened butter (250 mL)
1 cuplightly packed light brown sugar (250 mL)
1 egg (1)
2 cupsall-purpose flour (500 mL)
1/2 tspbaking powder (2 mL)
1/4 tspsalt (1 mL)
pinch fresh ground nutmeg (optional) (pinch)
FILLING/GARNISH
2 cupsCHIPITS Milk Chocolate Chips or CHIPITS Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chips (melted) (500 mL)

Directions

    1. Beat butter with sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg.

    2. Stir flour with baking powder, nutmeg and salt in separate bowl; blend into butter mixture on medium speed until combined.

    3. Divide dough in half; press each portion into a disk and wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Chill for 30 minutes.

    4. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Roll out each disk on a lightly floured surface until about 1/4-in (5 mm) thick. Use an egg-shaped cutter to cut out cookies. Re-roll scraps.

    5. Bake, on parchment-lined baking sheets, for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden on bottom. Cool on pan for 2 minutes; transfer to a rack to cool completely.

    6. Spread a little melted chocolate over the bottom of a cookie; immediately, sandwich with another cookie bottom. Repeat with remaining cookies.

    7. Decorate one side of sandwiched cookies with melted chocolate as preferred. Chill until set.

    Tips:
    • Use both milk and semi-sweet chocolate to decorate cookies for a pretty two-toned effect.
    • To melt chocolate chips, heat in the microwave on MEDIUM (50%) for 1 to 2 minutes; stir until smooth.
