Cookie Dough: Blend all ingredients together until the dough can be shaped into a smooth ball. Let it stand 20 minutes, loosely covered.

Form dough into marble-size balls. Place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet. Flatten each with the smooth bottom of a drinking glass greased once and dipped into Nestles' Quick Powder (or use sweetened chocolate drink powder). Bake at 400 degrees F for 8 minutes. Remove cookies at once from the baking sheet, to paper toweling and immediately flatten each cookie with the back of pancake turner. Let cool for 20 minutes. Fill with Cookie Filling mixture.

Cookie Filling: Soften gelatine in cold water. Place in a heatproof cup in a pan of hot water till gelatine is transparent. Meanwhile beat Crisco until fluffy, adding vanilla extract and sugar a little at a time. Beat in gelatine mixture when it is completely cooled, but not yet "set" or firm.

When cooled, shape filling into 1-inch balls. Place between the two bottom sides of the cooled cookies, pressing gently until the filling has spread to the edge of cookies and rounded out like the originals.

4. Ornamental Frosting

  • 1 (16 ounces) package confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons meringue powder
  • Assorted food colorings

Description

In a bowl with mixer at low-speed beat confectioners' sugar, meringue powder, and 1/3 cup warm water until mixture is stiff and knife drawn through it leaves a clean-cut path, about 7 minutes.

If you like, tint frosting with food colorings as desired; keep covered with plastic wrap to prevent drying out. With a small metal spatula, artists' paintbrushes, or decorating bags with small writing tubes, decorate cookies with frosting. You may need to thin frosting with a little warm water to obtain the right spreading or piping consistency. Makes about 3 cups.
