Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • ½ cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups mini chocolate morsels, such as NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini Morsels, divided
  • 1 package prepared vanilla frosting, colored if desired

Directions

Beat butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla extract and salt in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in egg yolk. Gradually beat in flour. Stir in 1 1/2 cups morsels. Divide dough in half; cover. Chill for 1 hour or until firm.

Roll half of dough to 1/4-inch thickness between two sheets of waxed paper. Remove top sheet of waxed paper. Cut into shapes using cookie cutters. Lift from waxed paper; place on ungreased baking sheets. Chill for 10 minutes. Repeat with remaining dough.

Bake in preheated 350 degrees F. oven for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Spread with frosting; pipe with melted chocolate.

To Pipe Chocolate: Place remaining morsels in heavy-duty plastic bag. Microwave on HIGH (100%) power for 45 seconds; knead. Microwave for additional 10 seconds; knead until smooth. Cut tiny corner from bag; squeeze to pipe chocolate.

Valentine Shopping Tip

Make sure you have all the recipes you are going to make ahead of time. Compile your grocery list from those recipes a week in advance. Make sure you allot enough time for the turkey to defrost.

Valentine Cooking Tip

Balance the amount of dishes prepared ahead and those put together last minute – serve cold dishes made in advance as well as items straight from the stove.
