Abuelita Sugar Cookies
Who couldn't use a little help from 'grandma' in the kitchen? Abuelita, which translated means grandma, is a cinnamon-infused Mexican chocolate that spices up this holiday favorite.
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
2 (3.15-ounce) tablets NESTLÉ ABUELITA Chocolate, finely chopped or grated
- Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Combine flour, baking soda and salt in medium bowl.
- Beat butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in large mixer bowl until combined. Beat in egg. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in chopped Abuelita. Scoop by rounded measuring teaspoon and roll into balls; place 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Flatten tops slightly.
- Bake for 8 to 9 minutes or until puffed and slightly golden around edges. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.
