“I Just Wanna Be Your Teddy Bear” Tuxedo Cookies
Yield: approximately 36
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup salted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon butter extract
  • 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, such as Ghirardelli 
  • Garnish: Wilton Gold Color Mist spray, gold sugar pearls, dark chocolate
  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Line several rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
  3. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt, whisking well.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine butter and sugar. Beat at high speed with a mixer until light and fluffy, approximately 5 minutes. Add egg,  vanilla extract, and butter extract, beating until incorporated. Gradually add flour mixture, beating until dough comes together.
  5. Place half of dough between 2 sheets of waxed paper, and roll to a ¼-inch thickness. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet, and freeze for 15 minutes. Repeat with remaining dough.
  6. Using a 3x2½-inch teddy bear–shaped cutter, cut as many shapes as possible from dough. Place cookies 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Using a wooden pick, etch a bow-tie shape onto each cookie.
  7. Bake cookies until edges are very light brown, approximately 10 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire cooling racks, and let cool completely.
  8. Spray cookies with Wilton Gold Color Mist spray, and let dry.
  9. Melt bittersweet chocolate according to package directions. Using a small food-safe paintbrush, paint melted dark chocolate into bow-tie shapes on cookies. Place a gold sugar pearl in the center of each bow tie. Let dry completely.
  10. Store cookies at room temperature in an airtight container with layers separated by waxed paper.
