Recipe Servings

1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 Land O Lakes® All-Natural Egg
1 teaspoon peppermint extract
3 cups all-purpose flour

1 (12-ounce) package (2 cups) real semi-sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons shortening

Combine all cookie ingredients except flour in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy.

Add flour; beat at low speed until well mixed. Divide dough in half; wrap each half in plastic food wrap. Refrigerate 2 hours or overnight until chilled.

Heat oven to 375°F. Roll out dough, one-half at a time (keeping remaining dough refrigerated), on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness.

Cut out cookies with 2 1/2-inch heart-shaped cutter. Place 1 inch apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 7-10 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned. Remove from cookie sheets to wire cooling rack; cool completely.

Melt chocolate and shortening in 1-quart saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, 4-6 minutes or until melted.

Dip half of each heart into chocolate. Place onto waxed paper-lined cookie sheets; refrigerate until chocolate is firm.

Store refrigerated.
