Ingredients

Cookie

1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened

1/3 cup sugar

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1/8 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

Glaze

1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 teaspoons shortening

1/2 cup finely chopped pecans

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine all cookie ingredients except flour in bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour. Beat until well mixed. Refrigerate dough at least 30 minutes.

  2. STEP 2

    Heat oven to 375°F.

  3. STEP 3

    Fit 1/2-inch small star-shaped plate into cookie press. Place dough in cookie press. Form long strips of cookie dough onto ungreased cookie sheet, cutting apart every 2 1/2 inches. Bake 6-8 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned. Cool completely

  4. STEP 4

    Melt chocolate chips and shortening in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring constantly, until chocolate is smooth. Dip each end of cooled cookie into chocolate, then into pecans.

Tip #1

Chocolate mixture can be reheated over low heat, if it begins to harden.

The appearance of the cookies are 5 stars, the taste is 4 stars. I will make again since they are so attractive. My yield was only 3 dozen since I used a pastry bag and a star tip. I rolled the chocolate in nonpareils but nuts would be very good too.
