How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine brown sugar, butter, 1 teaspoon vanilla and salt in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, 1/4 cup chocolate chips and milk. Beat until well mixed.

  3. STEP 3

    Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Make indentation in center of each cookie with thumb.

  4. STEP 4

    Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. (If necessary, make indentation in top of cookie again.) Cool completely. Sprinkle cookies with powdered sugar, if desired.

  5. STEP 5

    Melt 3/4 cup chocolate chips and shortening in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, 1-2 minutes or until smooth. Cool slightly. Stir in corn syrup, water and vanilla. Spoon about 1 teaspoon filling into each cookie indentation.
