The 2018 EPCOT International Festival of the Arts kicks off today. As Epcot guests explore the world of talent surrounding them, they can tempt their palates with culinary work-of-art creations at the festival’s Food Studios. For those not able to attend this year, we are bringing you a fun festival recipe to try at home, “Pop’t Art” sugar cookies!
SUGAR COOKIE (Makes 6)
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup butter
1 egg white
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1/8 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons chocolate-hazelnut spread
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
3–4 tablespoons milk
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
FOR SUGAR COOKIE:
- Cream the sugar and butter in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment until fluffy. Add egg white and beat for 1 minute.
- Slowly add sifted flour and salt and beat at medium speed until a soft dough forms.
- Cover bowl and chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 300°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment or silicone baking mat.
- Roll dough into a 1/4-inch thick rectangle on a lightly floured surface.
- Cut into six, 3×5-inch rectangles.
- Place cookies on prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes, until golden brown.
- Cool for 30 minutes.
- Spread 1 tablespoon of chocolate-hazelnut spread on each cookie, leaving a border of about 1/8 inch around the edges of each cookie.
- Set aside.
- Whisk powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons of the milk, and the vanilla extract in a pie plate until smooth. Add additional milk if the glaze is too thick.
- Set aside 2 tablespoons of glaze in a small bowl.
- Dip each cookie, chocolate-hazelnut side down, in the glaze to cover the chocolate.
- Set on a wire rack to dry.
- Mix remaining glaze with desired color or colors of food coloring. Use a fork to drizzle colored glaze on top of the cookies.
