About 6 dozen cookies

1
cup sugar
1/2
cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2
teaspoons vanilla
1
egg
1
package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
3
oz semisweet or bittersweet baking chocolate, melted, cooled
2 1/2
cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
1/2
teaspoon baking powder
1/2
teaspoon salt
6
oz vanilla-flavored candy coating (almond bark), melted
6
oz chocolate-flavored candy coating (almond bark), melted
  1. Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, beat sugar, butter, vanilla, egg, cream cheese and chocolate with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth, or mix with spoon. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt.
  2. On lightly floured cloth-covered surface, roll half of dough at a time to 1/8-inch thickness with cloth-covered rolling pin. Cut into desired shapes with 2 1/2-inch cookie cutters (dip cutters into baking cocoa if desired). On ungreased cookie sheet, place shapes about 1 inch apart.
  3. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until dry and set. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  4. Dip half of each cookie into melted vanilla coating; drop small dots of melted chocolate coating on soft vanilla coating. Drag toothpick through coatings for marbled design. Place on waxed paper. Let stand about 10 minutes or until coating is firm.

Success
Roll dough to an even thickness by rolling over wooden dowels or rulers placed at two opposite edges of dough.
How-To
Cut cookies with a cutter dipped into baking cocoa, flour or powdered sugar. Cut cookies as close together as possible on rolled dough to avoid re-rolling (re-rolled dough will be a little tougher).
Special Touch
Sandwich cookies in pairs with your favorite chocolate frosting and roll edges in candy sprinkles.
