  1. 1 cup (250 g) PC® Organics Unsalted Fresh Churned Butter, softened
  2. 3/4 cup (175 mL) icing sugar
  3. 1 tsp (5 mL) pure vanilla extract
  4. 1-½ cups (375 mL) PC® Organics Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  5. ½ cup (125 mL) cornstarch
  6. ½ tsp (2 mL) kosher salt
  7. 1 bar (100 g) PC® Organics Mint European Dark Chocolate, finely chopped
  8. ¼ cup (50 mL) granulated sugar
  1. Place butter, icing sugar and vanilla in stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment (or bowl with electric mixer). Beat on medium-high speed 2 to 3 minutes or until creamy and light in colour. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, cornstarch and salt; add half to butter mixture and beat on low speed just until combined. Add remaining flour mixture; beat just until combined. Beat in chocolate.
  2. Divide dough in half; place each half on a piece of plastic wrap; using plastic wrap, roll each into a tight log about 6 inches long. Chill 1 hour or until firm.
  3. Preheat oven to 325˚F (160˚C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  4. Remove one log from refrigerator; unwrap and cut crosswise with sharp knife into 12, 1/2–inch thick slices. (If dough crumbles from chocolate pieces, just press back into an even shape.) Dip each slice into granulated sugar to coat all over; place on one prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake in centre of oven 15 to 18 minutes or until light golden at edges and baked through. Cool on sheets on rack.
  6. Repeat with remaining dough. Discard any remaining granulated sugar.

About Jody MacArthur

Mommyjuiced is a blog about the everyday crazy life of a 30-something working mom who is trying to raise two relatively sane young ladies (ages 7 and 10). I live on the East Coast of Canada on one of the most beautiful islands in the world – the home of my heart, Cape Breton. My background is in public relations and marketing and I know how to tell a good story. If you are brand who wants to tell a story, email me and we’ll “talk” details. I started this blog in 2012 as a way to express myself and to let other parents know that this parenthood gig is hard, but we’re all in it together. So don’t take everything I post seriously, sometimes I make s*&% up. True story. But what I am not making up is the fact that I love my kids and family and am thankful that you stopped by to read my blog. I don’t ALWAYS drink wine… but when I do, I’m awesome (or at least I think so)! “Seriously, I love you. You are doing more for the mental health of other mothers than the makers of Prozac!” - Suzanne, mother of 5 (yes 5 kids!) Email me at jodymacarthur at eastlink dot ca if you want more info.
