For cake dough:
10 tablespoons unsalted butter at temperature
1/2 cup ground spread (I use the Jiff brand)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
For the icing:
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate , chopped
2 tablespoons of milk
2 tablespoons spread
3/4 to 1 cup castor sugar
To make cake dough:
1.In a large bowl, beat the butter and spread on medium speed until smooth. Add 1/2 cup granulated sugar and beat until fluffy. Scrape the edges of the bowl and stir again until everything is combined. Add the vanilla and stir gently over low heat until combined, scrapping the edges with a spatula as required .
2.In a small bowl, beat together flour, cornstarch and salt. Add the flour mixture in thirds to the butter cream mixture. Stir over medium-low heat until each addition is combined. Scrape the dough into balls, cover the bowl with wrapping and chill for 1 hour.
3.To bake cookies, preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Pour during a spoonful of the mixture evenly employing a 1-inch cake spoon. Roll each into a decent ball and place two inches on the prepared baking sheet. Gently press each ball of dough with the bottom of alittle glass or cup to the specified thickness. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes at 350F or until edges are golden. Slide parchment paper with cookies onto a wire rack until cool. Repeat with a replacement sheet of parchment paper placed on a cooled baking sheet. Cool pastries completely before freezing.
To make icing:
1.Combine the chopped chocolate, milk, and spread during a heat-safe bowl that's placed over a saucepan crammed with lightly boiling water (don't let the water touch rock bottom of the bowl). Stir until the chocolate is totally melted and smooth. close up the warmth but leave the skillet on the stove. Add granulated sugar and stir until combined. The icing may look a touch runny, but it'll thicken and harden. Immediately coat each cake with about 1 teaspoon of chocolate mixture. Quickly sprinkle each cake with chopped salted nuts before the chocolate hardens. Place on a wire rack and permit the icing to harden before storing cookies.
