In a couple of weeks, I'm making an airplane cake and my customer has requested matching airplane cookies. However, she specifically wanted chocolate cookies. Well, I have my terrific sugar cookie recipe, and I've read that you can adapt a sugar cookie recipe to a chocolate sugar cookie recipe, but I wanted to go a step farther.
Awhile back I had read about Brownie Roll-Out Cookies, so I wanted to give that recipe a try! They turned out fantastic! This dough is perfect for rolling out and cutting into shapes... in my case, airplanes.
For some of the cookies, I used the cookie cutter (this plane came from the Wilton set) to cut out marshmallow fondant planes and "glued" them on the cookies with buttercream. The decorations for these are very neat and clean...
In fact, after tasting the cookie with vanilla buttercream, I was inspired to make some sandwich cookies!
Mmmm... so good!
I also read that these are perfect for making homemade ice cream sandwiches, and I have to say, I bet that's true! A tiny scoop of vanilla ice cream pressed between these soft, yet crispy cookies would be heavenly!! These cookies are a little soft and chewy in the middle, but crisp on the outside! The chocolate flavor really stands out, and I just love 'em!
