  1. Melt baking bar in double boiler and set aside. Mix flour and salt together and set aside. In large bowl, beat butter and sugar until smooth. Add melted chocolate and vanilla. Add flour mixture to chocolate mixture and mix just until blended. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour.
  2. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper. On a lightly floured board, roll dough to 3/8-inch thick and cut with cookie cutters. If the dough is very soft, chill again for at least 30 minutes. Bake for 7-9 minutes. Cool completely in pan.
  3. Melt chocolate chips with 1 Tbsp butter in double boiler. Dip cooled cookie in melted chocolate mixture and let chocolate set.

These didn't turn out so well. I am a seasoned baker, but I had trouble rolling them out after following the directions exactly. The dough would break apart and crack instead of rolling out. I was able to roll out four star cookies. I chilled the dough again and baked them for 7 minutes and when I opened the oven, the cookies were paper thin and essentially melted. The dough itself is super yummy. I would like to try these again sometimes in the future and see if they come out differently. I was unable to eat the cookies because they were so thin, so I had to throw them away. The recipe has no eggs in it so I am going to keep the remaining dough and add it to ice cream or something like that.
