White Birch Cookies


Use a little melted dark chocolate to make these logs look like white birch trees.


  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3 teaspoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 12 ounces vanilla candy coating or almond bark
  • 2 ounces semisweet chocolate, melted


Heat oven to 400°. Grease baking sheets or line with nonstick cooking mats. In a large bowl, cream sugar and butter until light. Add milk, vanilla and egg; beat well. Add flour, baking powder and cinnamon; blend well. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. On lightly floured surface, roll balls into log shapes, about 6 inches in length. Place the logs on greased cookie sheets. Bake cookies at 400° for about 6 to 8 minutes, or until light golden brown. Remove immediately and cool completely. Place melted candy coating or almond bark in shallow bowl or pie plate. Dip logs into the melted vanilla candy coating; place on waxed paper to cool. Drizzle a little melted semisweet chocolate over logs to make them resemble birch trees. Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
