White Chocolate Meltaways

White Chocolate Meltaways by Family Circle

1 c unsalted butter at room temperature
1 egg
3/4 c powdered sugar
2 1/2 c all purpose flour
pinch salt
2 t vanilla
12 oz white baking chocolate, chopped or white melting disks
2/3 c assorted nonpareils

1. Heat oven to 375. Beat butter in medium-size bowl until creamy. Beat in egg. Add sugar-vanilla; on low speed, beat until well blended.
2. Put dough into cookie press fitted with 1"sawtooth ribbon disk. Press into long strips onto ungreased baking sheets. With floured knife, score strips every 2 inches.
3. Bake in 375 oven 6 minutes, until just browning around edges. Cut cookies along score lines; cool on rack.
4. Melt chocolatein small cup over simmering water, or microwave on high 2 minutes; stir until smooth. Spread 1/2 t melted chocolate on underside of cookie; top with another cookie, flat sides together. Repeat with remaining cookies. Refrigerate 5 minutes to set. Place nonpareils in dish. Dip 1/2" of each end of cookie in remaining chocolate, then in nonpareils. Place on waxed paper; refrigerate to set.

In my opinion: These are good and look very pretty.
