Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 16

1/3 Cup(s) Butter, no substitutes
1/3 Cup(s) Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Baking soda
1 Egg yolk
1 1/2 Teaspoon(s) Vanilla
1 Cup(s) All-Purpose Flour
3 Ounce(s) Semisweet chocolate
1 Teaspoon(s) Shortening
Strawberry jam or hazelnut
Pretzel twists, broken
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. 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. 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. 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. 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. Recipe by: Better Homes
