Cookies rolled around a pencil or dowel and filled with chocolate.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 egg whites
- 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
- 1/4 teaspoon vegetable oil
In a large mixing bowl, cream 1/2 cup butter or margarine, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1 teaspoon vanilla until light and fluffy. Add egg whites; blend well. Gradually add flour and blend well.
Drop batter by teaspoons 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Spread with the back of a spoon into 3-inch rounds.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Bake for 5 minutes or until edges are light brown. Working with 1 cookie at a time, loosen from baking sheet with a spatula and then quickly roll tightly around a pencil. Transfer to a wire rack to cool, seam side down.
With a pastry bag or soda straw or wooden pick, fill rolls with Creamy Chocolate Filling.
