My daughter-in-love loves Milano cookies. This year for her birthday I thought I would make some for her birthday. These cookies were inspired by Tessa Arias @handletheheat. The recipe is easy, and the cookies are so good!! Thanks Tessa!
- 1 stick room temperature unsalted butter (113 grams)
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar (133 grams)
- 1 tsp. pure vanilla
- 1 large room temperature egg
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (159 grams)
- 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
- 4 oz. semi-sweet chocolate chips (113 grams)
Cream butter and sugar in mixing bowl for 2 minutes. Scrape bowl and paddle as needed.
Add the egg and vanilla and mix until incorporated. Add flour and salt and mix on low speed until fully incorporated.
Place batter in pipping bag fitted with a 1/2″ tip. Pipe 2 1/2″ lines at least 3/4″ apart on prepared baking sheet (line with parchment paper or silicone pad). I piped 3 rows with 8 lines on each row.
Place piped batter in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350° F (175° C) while the dough is chilling. After dough has chilled, place in preheated oven and bake for 16 minutes (turn 1/2 way through baking to ensure even baking). Edges will be golden in color.
Remove cookies from oven and place on cooling rack.
While the cookies are cooling, place chocolate chips in microwavable bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, stir, and continue until chocolate is melted. Cool slightly and then spread the chocolate on a cookie and then sandwich with another.
This recipe makes 12 cookies.
I placed 2 cookies in a birthday themed cupcake liner. I put them in a container and tied it up with red ribbon.
It’s Melissa’s 40th birthday today and times are a bit crazy right now, but I think she liked having some homemade Milano cookies.
Happy Birthday Missy…I love you so much!!!
