Ingredients

Cookie

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon cream of tartar

1 teaspoon baking soda

Glaze

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

2 tablespoons shortening

 

Finely chopped pecans, if desired

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine powdered sugar, butter, egg and vanilla in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour, cream of tartar and baking soda; beat at low speed until well mixed.

  2. STEP 2

    Divide dough into fourths. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour.

  3. STEP 3

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  4. STEP 4

    Roll each fourth (keeping remaining dough refrigerated) into 4 (10-inch) ropes. Cut each rope into 4 (2 1/2-inch) pieces. Shape each piece into crescent. Place onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until set. Cookies do not brown. Cool completely.

  5. STEP 5

    Combine chocolate chips and shortening in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave 1-2 minutes until melted. Dip half of each cookie into chocolate; immediately sprinkle with chopped pecans, if desired. Let stand until set.

I loved making these the first time and I've decided to make them again! They turned out exactly like the photo and everyone at the party enjoyed them!

My cookies seem to be a bit flatter than the photo. I went ahead and dipped them in chocolate and nuts, everyone loved them. so I didn't say anything and several people asked for the recipe. These are definitely on the keeper list.
