Chocolate-Tipped Butter Cookies Recipe

These wonderfully moist morsels are too tempting to resist. "They melt right in your mouth," comments Charolette Westfall of Houston, Texas. "They're simple to fix, too." Rather than sprinkling the chocolate tips with nuts, you can roll them in red and green jimmies or leave them plain. Either way, Charolette's are real treats!— Charolette Westfall, Houston, Texas

"These are SO easy to make, and they look like they came from the bakery. You can't go wrong with this recipe. My husband is always the test, and he said these are keepers. The semi sweet chocolate compliments the nuts AND the cookie. I used butter rather than shortening, and it was fine. Excellent Recipe! These will not last long!"
