Butter Cookies with Chocolate Glaze


These butter cookies are dipped in chocolate glaze. Sprinkle the glazed cookies with chopped nuts, colored sugar, or coconut for a festive look.


  • 3/4 cup soft butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups cake flour - sift before measuring
  • chocolate glaze, below


Cream butter, gradually adding sugar. Add egg yolk and vanilla; beat well. Gradually blend in flour. Refrigerate dough for about 2 hours or until dough can be easily handled. Shape into 2 rolls about 1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter; wrap each roll in waxed paper and refrigerate overnight (seal in a food storage bag and freeze a portion, if desired).
Preheat oven to 400°. Slice dough 1/8-inch thick and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 400° for 8 to 10 minutes, or until edges are lightly browned. Cool cookies then dip half of of each cookie into chocolate glaze (recipe below). If desired, before chocolate sets, sprinkle with chopped nuts or coconut. Makes 5 to 6 dozen cookies.
