These delicious cookies are 
made with dark and white chocolate
They can be prepared in advance,  
the dough frozen and baked when needed
[makes about 3 doz. small cookies]

1 cup white flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temp.

1/4 tsp. salt
1 egg white
3 oz. white chocolate grated  or 1/3 cup white chocolate chips

In a bowl mix flour and cocoa- set aside

In another bowl, cream the butter, icing sugar and salt with an electric beater

Add the egg white and mix just until well blended

At low speed or with a wooden spoon add the dry ingredients and white chocolate

Divide the dough in two and place on plastic wrap

Roll into a roll approx. 1 1/2 inches in diameter

Refrigerate for 2 hrs. making sure the rolls are very hard...

or you could freeze and bake at a later date.

Preheat oven to 350 deg.

Slice dough 1/4 inch thick and place on parchment paper on two cookie sheets

Bake approx. 12 mins or until cookie is firm but the centers still soft.

Cool completely on rack

My Grandaughter, Sabrina decorated each cookie with a White Chocolate Chip before baking

I got the recipe from Ricardo Christmas Magazine
