 Ingredients List

  • 1/3 c Butter; no substitutes
  • 1/3 c Sugar
  • 1/2 ts Baking soda
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 1 1/2 ts Vanilla
  • 1 c All-purpose flour
  • 3 oz Semisweet chocolate
  • 1 ts Shortening
  • Strawberry jam or hazelnut
  • -butter
  • Pretzel twists; broken,
  • -optional

 Directions

1. Beat butter in a medium bowl with an electric mixer on medium to high
speed for 30 seconds. Add sugar and baking soda; beat till combined. Beat
in egg yolk and vanilla. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the
mixer. Stir in any remaining flour with a wooden spoon.

2. To shape, press a small amount of dough firmly and evenly into a
teaspoon (not a measuring teaspoon). Gently tap the side of the spoon onto
a greased cookie sheet to remove the shaped cookie. If necessary, use your
finger to help remove dough from spoon. Reshape dough slightly on cookie
sheet, if necessary. Makes 32 ovals.

3. Bake in 350 degree oven for 8 to 10 minutes or till lightly browned.
Cool on cookie sheet. Combine chocolate and shortening in a small saucepan.
Cook and stir over low heat till chocolate is melted; cool.

4. Place about 1 teaspoon strawberry jam or hazelnut butter on the flat
side of a cookie; top with another cookie, flat side down. Repeat with
remaining cookies. Dip wide end of each cookie sandwich into melted
chocolate. Place on wire rack over waxed paper. Sprinkle with chopped nuts.
Insert a pretzel piece at top of cookie for stem, if desired.

5. To store, place cookies in a single layer in a shallow container;
refrigerate up to a week.

NOTES : For acornlike oval shapes, mold the dough with a flatware teaspoon,
not a measuring teaspoon.
