    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    1/3 cup butter, softened
    1/3 cup shortening
    3/4 cup sugar
    1 egg
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 3/4 cups flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt

    2 pkg (3 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
    1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
    2 tbsp flour
    1 tsp vanilla
    1 drop yellow food coloring, optional

    3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
    3 tbsp butter


    In a large bowl, cream the butter, shortening, and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg. Beat in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add to the creamed mixture. Mix well. Shape into two 12-inch rolls. Wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight. Unwrap and cut into 1-inch slices. Place 1 inch apart on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 F 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 a wire rack to cool. In a small bowl, combine the filling ingredients. Place 2 teaspoonfuls in the center of each cookie. Let stand until set. In a
    microwave, melt the chocolate chips and the butter. Stir until smooth. Drizzle over the cookies. Store in the refrigerator. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen
