DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Cream butter and sugar together.
  • Add egg yolks and vanilla. Beat until smooth.
  • To egg whites in a shallow bowl, add water and beat with a fork.
  • Shape dough into 1 1/2 - 2-inch long fingers with stubby ends. My Mom used to make them into little horseshoe shapes after she shaped them into the fingers. It gave them a neat appearance.
  • Drop into egg whites.
  • Roll in nuts.
  • Bake for 14 - 16 minutes.
  • Cool.
  • While the cookies cool, melt the chocolate squares using whichever method you prefer. I usually use the microwave and stir every 15 seconds. You could melt it with a double boiler if you wish.
  • Dip ends in melted chocolate.
  • Set on waxed paper to allow chocolate to set up.
