- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
- 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar

- Combine the flour, butter, confectioners' sugar and vanilla in a large bowl. Stir to mix well. Shape heaping teaspoonfuls of dough into 2-inch logs and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350F for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Melt the chocolate chips and shortening in the top of a double boiler over hot water. Remove from the heat.
