Combine 1 cup flour and all remaining cookie ingredients in bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Stir in remaining 1 cup flour.
Divide dough in half. Shape each into a ball; flatten slightly. Wrap each in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours or until firm.
Heat oven to 350°F.
Roll out dough on well floured surface, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut with 2 1/2 to 3-inch star cookie cutters into desired shapes. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets; sprinkle with decorator sugars. Bake 8-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool completely. Place onto waxed paper. Repeat with remaining dough.
Melt chocolate chips and shortening in saucepan, over low heat, stirring occasionally, until melted. Drizzle over cookies.
