Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • cup butter

  • ½ cup shortening

  • ¾ cup white sugar

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tablespoon milk

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 3 drops red food coloring

  • cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

  • 1 ½ cups confectioners' sugar

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 3 drops green food coloring

Directions

  1. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a small mixing bowl.

  2. Beat butter and shortening with an electric mixer at medium speed until fluffy; gradually add sugar, beating well. Stir in egg, milk, and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture to creamed mixture, mixing well. Add a small amount of red food coloring to color dough as desired, beating until blended. Shape dough into a ball; cover and chill at least 3 hours.

  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  4. Divide dough in half; store one portion in refrigerator. Roll remaining portion to 1/4 inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut dough with a 3-inch round cookie cutter; cut circle in half. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Press several chocolate mini chocolate chips in each cookie. Repeat with remaining dough.

  5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes (do not brown). Cool on wire racks.

  6. Make frosting: Combine powdered sugar and water, mixing until smooth. Add a small amount of green food coloring, mixing until blended. Dip round edge of each cookie in green frosting, and place cookie on wax paper until frosting is firm.
