Ingredients

Cookie

1 1/2 cups
Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 cup
sugar
1
large Land O Lakes® Egg
1 teaspoon
vanilla
1/8 teaspoon
almond extract
3 1/2 cups
all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon
ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon
baking powder

Chocolate Coating

1 (12-ounce) package (2 cups)
real semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons
shortening

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 375°F.
  2. Combine butter and sugar in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg, vanilla and almond extract; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, cinnamon and baking powder. Beat until well mixed.
  3. Fit cookie press with ribbon template; fill with dough. Press dough into long strips, 1-inch apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Cut strips with knife every 1 1/2 to 2 inches. (Do not separate.) Bake 7-8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 5 minutes; separate into cookies. Cool completely.
  4. Melt chocolate chips and shortening in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth (2-4 minutes). Spread bottom-side of each cookie with chocolate. Let stand on waxed paper, chocolate-side up, until set.
