Did you guys eat Fudge Stripe cookies as kids? Did you pop them onto your finger and casually eat them around the edges? I totally did. So these are a total memory! And an accessory! And they look so good in stripes.
These taste just like the Keebler guys. And since I live in an upper flat, I’m basically baking these in a tree, right? So if you ever crave these store-bought beauties, just make them! And when you’re snacking on them you’ll totally feel like a kid at a church picnic or at your Aunt’s house, but mostly you’ll just feel like a kid spinning around with a cookie on your finger.
- 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 t baking soda
- 6 T light corn syrup
- 1/2 cup canola oil or melted clarified butter
- 2 T vanilla extract
- 10-ish oz. dark chocolate, chopped and melted
- Preheat oven to 35o°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Combine the flour and baking soda in the bowl of an electric mixer and stir briefly. Add in the corn syrup, oil or butter, and vanilla. Mix until a dough comes together. Form into a disc, wrap in plastic and chill for 10-15 minutes.
- Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to about a 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out using a 2 1/2 inch round cookie cutter and a tiny round cutter or pastry tip to cut a small hole in the center. Poke lightly with the tines of a fork. Reroll dough scraps cutting out more cookies until dough is all used up. Bake until just barely browned 7-9 minutes. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack to cool completely.
- When cookies are completely cool, melt the chocolate in a heatproof bowl set a few inches over a pot of simmering water. One at a time dip the bottom of each cookie lightly in the melted chocolate so that is covered in a thin layer. Transfer back to parchment-lined baking sheets to set. Use the remaining chocolate to create a thin striped pattern over the surface of the cookies. Using a plastic bag it a teeny corner cut out works fabulously. Chill in the fridge until chocolate sets.
