  • Combine flour and salt. Beat butter and 1/2 cup sugar in large bowl of mixer until light and fluffy. Add vanilla; mix well. Gradually add flour mixture, mixing well after each addition.
  • Divide dough in half. Shape each half into ball; flatten into disk. Wrap individually in plastic wrap.
  • Refrigerate 1 hour or until chilled.
  • Heat oven to 325°F. Cover baking sheets with parchment.
  • Roll out half the dough on lightly floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness. Use 2-1/4-inch round cookie cutter to cut dough into 24 rounds, re-rolling scraps as necessary. Place, 1 inch apart, on prepared baking sheets.
  • Repeat with remaining dough, except use narrow end of 1/4-inch piping tip to cut 5 small evenly spaced holes in each dough round before placing on prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake 15 to 17 min. or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely on baking sheets.
  • Meanwhile, microwave Cool Whip and chocolate in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 1-1/2 min. or until chocolate starts to melt; stir until chocolate is completely melted and mixture is well blended. Cool until ready to use.
  • Place solid cookies, upside down, on work surface; spread with chocolate mixture, adding about 1 tsp. chocolate mixture to each cookie. Sift remaining icing sugar over tops of remaining cookies; place, sugar sides up, over chocolate-topped cookies. Press together gently to secure.

Food Facts

Use a spreader or small spatula for moving cookies from rolling surface to baking sheet. This will help to keep the round shapes of the cookies intact.
