DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Cream brown sugar and margarine together; stir in 2 oz melted chocolate.
  • Beat in egg then add milk alternately with flour, baking soda, and salt; stir in vanilla.
  • Drop by heaping tablespoons onto lightly-greased cookie sheet, spreading batter slightly.
  • Bake in 350 degree oven for 10 minutes, let them set for 5 minutes on the cookie sheets; then remove the cookies from the cookie sheets and place inverted on a cooling rack.
  • Combine four cups sifted confectioners sugar with one-half cup melted shortening; add one teaspoon vanilla and enough milk to make a spreadable consistency.
  • Note: frost the bottom of the cookies, not the top!
  • Separate the frosting into two equal portions.
  • Add two ounces melted chocolate to one portion and stir well.
  • Carefully spread white frosting on half the bottom of each cookie, then the other half with chocolate frosting (try to keep them from overlapping, instead let them meet together).
  • These are good cookies for graduation parties, too, because you can omit the chocolate from both the cookie and the frosting and use icing-colorings to make the frosting the school colors!
