“I found this in a Betty Crocker cookie book. It is like a chocolate shortbread cookie molded around a truffle with glaze on the top. Sound yummy? It is! It's a bit more labor intensive than a simple drop cookie, but it is SO worth it. I made it for Christmas, but, honestly, any time of the year is great for this cookie. NOTE: Prep time includes freezing time.”
