Chocolate Cream Spritz Cookies
Mascarpone cheese makes these shaped cookies extra rich tasting. If you can't find it, use cream cheese instead.
If you like, in heavy saucepan, combine chocolate pieces and shortening; melt over medium-low heat. Dip part of cooled cookies into chocolate. Sprinkle with candies.
Cool cookies completely. The cookies keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. In a freezer container, arrange cookies in a single layer; cover with a sheet of waxed paper. Repeat layers, leaving enough air space to close container easily. Freeze up to 1 month.
