  1. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, sugar, and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, dry pudding mix, baking powder, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Cover dough, and refrigerate for at least one hour for easier handling.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Shape teaspoonfuls of dough into finger shapes, about 1 1/2 inches long. Place cookies on prepared cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 9 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until set and very lightly browned on bottoms. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. In small saucepan over low heat, melt together chocolate and shortening, stirring constantly until smooth and well blended. Drizzle a small amount of chocolate over each cookie. Allow the chocolate to set before storing.

I have loved these since I was a little girl, they're a holiday staple at my mom's! She makes the shape by putting them in an tipless pastry/icing bag, and squeezing them out.

I was surprised also that a few people rated these poorly--I just made 5 different cookies from the Allrecipes Best Cookies book and these were a stand-out favorite at our party. The dough is V...

I could not mold this cookie, so I let the dough stand at room temperature. When it was soft enough, I used a cookie press (leaf shaped disc). Once the cookies were cooled, I sandwiched melted...

Everyone thought they were store bought! Lovely delicate flavour, and they're green! I refrigerated for several days BEFORE baking and still came out great. They stay chewy and fresh for a lo...

I printed the recipe out adding the reviews I wanted and also printed it out to make 1/2 the amount. As I was mixing the ingredients for the 1/2 recipe I realized the reviews suggesting adding 2...
