  • 12 tablespoons Butter softened
  • 2 1/2 cups Powdered Sugar
  • 7/8 cup Egg Whites from about 6 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tablespoons Lemon Extract
  • 1 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour

Cookie filling:

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 8 ounces semisweet chocolate chopped
  • 1 orange zested


  • In a mixer with paddle attachment cream the butter and the sugar.
  • Add the egg whites gradually and then mix in the vanilla and lemon extracts.
  • Add the flour and mix until just well mixed.
  • 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.
  • Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 10 minutes or until light golden brown around the edges. Let cool on the pan.
  • While waiting for the cookies to cool, in a small saucepan over medium flame, scald cream.
  • Pour hot cream over chocolate in a bowl, whisk to melt chocolate, add zest and blend well.
  • 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.



So, how were the cookies?
Well… they were OK. I mean, there is no way they could have tasted bad with all that butter, sugar and chocolate, but they didn’t blow me away like all the past Daring Bakers challenges. I suppose I went into this challenge expecting the cookies to be like the Pepperidge Farm ones, but these were very moist and chewy and not crispy like I was hoping for.
Oh well, that is why I am a Daring Baker… to bake and to learn!
