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

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  2. STEP 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. STEP 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. STEP 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.

Tip #1

Add the chocolate coating in a snap, just use a pastry brush about the same width as the cookies.

Tip #2
