Irish Cream Truffle Cookies

 by Better Homes and Gardens
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1/2 c sugar
2 oz semi-sweet chocolate, melted
1/4 c cooking oil
1 t baking powder
1 t vanilla
1 c flour
sifted powder sugar
2 oz cream cheese, softened
1/3 c sifted powder sugar
1 oz semisweet chocolate, melted
1 T Irish Cream Liqueur

1. In a med. bowl, stir together egg through vanilla. Stir in the flour. Cover and chill dough 1-2 hours.
2. Preheat oven to 375. Shape chilled dough into 1/2" balls. Place 1" apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake in preheated oven for 6-7 minutes or until edges are set. Transfer to a wire rack and cool. Sprinkle cooled cookies with powdered sugar.
3. For cream filling, in a small bowl, combine the cream cheese through liqueur. Beat with electric mixer on medium until combined.
4. To assemble, spread 1/2 t of cream filling onto the flat side of half the cookies; top with second cookie.
5. Drizzle cookies, cover and store in fridge up to 3 days. For drizzle I combine 3 oz morsels and 1 t shortening. Heat until melted.

I haven't made these cookies since 2004. The recipe was lost and recently found. I know these cookies were delicious so I need to make them again really soon.
