DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine butter, sugar, vanilla, and eggs until light & fluffy.
  • Add salt & mix well, then cup-by-cup add the flour.
  • Last, add the chopped chips and mix well.
  • Shape dough into little "logs" (about 1 1/2" long).
  • Arrange "logs" on UNgreased cookie sheets fairly close together (don't spread much) -- about 14 to a 10x15 sheet.
  • Bake for 12-15 minutes (golden brown); transfer to a cooling rack.
  • Melt the shortening & chocolate chips, stirring to mix smoothly.
  • Dip one end of each cookie into the chocolate, scraping off the bottom against the edge of the bowl; dip cookie into chopped nuts, then return it to the cooling rack (place waxed paper underneath to catch the chocolate drips).
  • OR sprinkle with seasonal or holiday sprinkles and skip the nuts altogether.
  • Let cookies sit on racks until firm.
  • Store in covered tins with waxed paper between the layers.
