Instructions Checklist

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are golden, rotating pans from front to back about halfway through baking time. Cool on cookie sheets for 1 minute. Transfer cookies to wire racks; cool.

Instructions Checklist

Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium microwave-safe bowl microwave white baking chocolate, uncovered, on 100 percent power (high) for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes or until chocolate melts, stirring every 30 seconds. Dip one end of each sandwich cookie into melted chocolate. Place cookies on waxed paper. Let stand until chocolate is set.
