DIRECTIONS

  • n a large mixing bowl, cream butter, shortening and sugar.
  • Beat in egg and vanilla.
  • Combine flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture.
  • Shape into two 12-in. rolls; wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.
  • Unwrap and cut into 1-in. slices.
  • Place 1 inches apart on greased baking sheet. Bake at 375° for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Immediately make an indentation in the center of each cookie using the end of a wooden spoon handle. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  • Combine filling ingredients in a mixing bowl; mix well.
  • Place 2 teaspoonfuls in the center of each cookie. Let stand until set.
  • In a small saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate chips and butter; stir until smooth.
  • Drizzle over cookies. (I use an icing bag to make my cookies more aesthetically pleasing, but beware of burning your hands!) Store in the refrigerator.
