Posted by Chef #446736 on zaar forum: "This recipe appeared in our newspaper several years ago. It was from the "Dear Ask-it" column with this introduction: This is for M.F. of Canandaigua. It is a very close substitute for Sibley's original Chinese Marble Cookies. I make them all the time. It was submitted by K. L. from Hilton, NY. These are very crisp and delicious." NOTE FROM DES: One suggestion you might want to make if you decide to post this recipe is not to use a cookie scoop. By using a cookie scoop it will cause the chocolate to blend into the dough more than what is desired.

These are by far my favorite cookie! I only use shortening, you get crisper outter and a chewier inner. I also added about a teaspoon extra of vanilla and a whole tsp of almond extract. An extra ounce of chocolate is delish! I roll them in sugar thn flatten! Yum, enjoy!!

- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- Beat the shortening with sugar and egg until light and fluffy.
- Add egg, then vanilla.
- Add dry ingredients and beat until well combined.
- Add chocolate a little at a time, cutting in with a knife. Do not stir.
- Form dough into balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten with the bottom of a sugar-coated glass.
