Chocolate Turtle Cookies
These holiday cookies taste as great as they look, and draw inspiration from the popular candy.
Why This Recipe Works
To prepare the dough for these Chocolate Turtle Cookies, we used the creaming method for a light, airy texture. We blended the sugar and butter (softened at room temperature) until the mixture was light and airy, which trapped air in the batter. At this point we incorporated the egg yolks and dairy, followed by the dry ingredients. We left the egg whites out of the cookie dough, as the water in the egg whites blended with the flour to form gluten, which made for tough cookies.
