- Cut the cold butter into small pieces over the flour mixture.
- Work together all the ingredients quickly to make a smooth dough.
- Chill for 1/2 hour.
- Shape the dough into rolls about the thickness of a finger.
- Cut the rolls into 5 cm (2") pieces.
- Place on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 12 to 18 minutes or until light golden brown.
- Cool cookies.
- Melt the chocolate and butter in the top half of a double boiler, stirring until well blended and smooth.
- Dip the ends of the cooled cookies int the chocolate.
- Allow dipped cookies to cool on waxed paper until the chocolate has set.
I'm not usually big on dipped cookies, but must admit that I enjoyed making these tasty little treats ~ Actually, they''re great chocolate fixes for a serious chocoholic! Will be making these again before the winter holidays are over! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the current Sweet Traditions event]
