  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix flour, butter, sugar, and vanilla extract in a bowl until dough is smooth. Reserve 1/4 the chocolate chips; stir remaining chips into dough until evenly distributed. Roll dough into 24 small logs and place a baking sheet.
  3. Bake in preheated oven until slightly golden around the edges, 15 to 20 minutes. Cool in baking sheet for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.
  4. Melt shortening in a small saucepan over medium-low heat; stir in reserved chocolate chips until melted, about 5 minutes. Dip cookies into chocolate and return to baking sheet. Refrigerate until firm.

I made this recipe without changes to take to a party where the only two people I knew were close friends of my significant other's ex-wife. Through clenched teeth, they told me that these coo...

This cookies are perfect dunkers. I enjoy eating them in the morning with coffee. I would suggest adding less chocolate chips to the base, but that's just me.
