Mud Puddle aka. Peeky Cookies

Cookie Base:

1 lb. butter

1 cup sugar

1/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp vanilla

4 cups flour

2 lbs. semisweet chocolate, chopped

2 cups heavy cream

1 1/2 cup sugar

 

Cookie Base:

Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add salt and vanilla; blend well. Slowly add flour and combined well. Divide in half and roll out to about 1/4 inch thick. Cut in circles using a 2 inch round cookie cutter. Place on parchment line baking sheets for about 20 minutes or until the edges just begin to lightly brown. Do not over bake. Allow to cool completely.

 

Chocolate Mud:

Place the chopped chocolate in a heatproof bowl; set aside. In a small saucepan, add the cream and sugar. Bring to boil’ stirring constantly until sugar is dissolved. Pour the hot cream mixture over the chopped chocolate and allow to set for about a minute. Stir until smooth. Using a tablespoon, dollop about 1 spoonful on top of each cookie.

  1. Reblogged this on maggiesonebuttkitchen and commented:

    Berger cookies are one of my sons favorite cookies. I decided that since I lived so far from the famous bakery which makes them that I needed to recreate them at home. My son lives half a world from me now; recreating his favorite cookie somehow makes me feel that we are not so far apart.
