Marble Fudge Cookies

Despite all the baking I do and baked goods that I have in the house, I have pretty good willpower.  For Most things.  Marble Fudge Cookies (and the Mandelbread recipe I posted today) are on the "Willpower out the Window List".  There's no fighting it.  So easy.  So good.

Ingredients 
Cookies
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups pure vegetable shortening like Crisco 
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1 large egg
1/4 cup choclate chips (1 ounce)

Fudge Glaze
6 ounces chocolate chips
3 tablespoons vegetable shortening
1 tablespoon confectioner's sugar

Directions
Cookies:

In a large mixing bowl, with mixer at medium speed, mix the flour,  shortening, sugar and baking soda.  Add egg. Mix until dough forms.

Place the chocolate chips in a glass bowl and melt in the microwave for 1 minute at 70%; stir to hasten melting.  With a knife, cut the melted chocolate into the dough, swirling as best you can.

Using parchment or waxed paper, roll the dough into 3 logs, each about the size of a salami or 2 1/2 to 3 inch in diameter.  Freeze for 1/2 hour - 1 hour to make the slicing neater and easier.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray 2 cookie sheets with nonstick  cooking spray or line with parchment paper.  Slice each log into 12-15 cookies.  Bake 15-20 minutes.  Let cool on a rack.

Glaze:

Either in a double boiler or in the microwave, melt the chocolate chips with the shortening and confectioner's sugar.  Stir till smooth and shiny.  Put a puddle in the center of each cookie.  Place in refrigerator for 10 minutes to set the chocolate.  Store in a single layer so chocolate doesn't smudge. 

Yield:  30-34 cookies
