“A slight twist on traditional half moon cookies, adding tasty chocolate! (See directions for using these for a graduation party treat.)”
1 batch

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cream brown sugar and margarine together; stir in 2 oz melted chocolate.
  3. Beat in egg then add milk alternately with flour, baking soda, and salt; stir in vanilla.
  4. Drop by heaping tablespoons onto lightly-greased cookie sheet, spreading batter slightly.
  5. Bake in 350 degree oven for 10 minutes, let them set for 5 minutes on the cookie sheets; then remove the cookies from the cookie sheets and place inverted on a cooling rack.
  6. Combine four cups sifted confectioners sugar with one-half cup melted shortening; add one teaspoon vanilla and enough milk to make a spreadable consistency.
  7. Note: frost the bottom of the cookies, not the top!
  8. Separate the frosting into two equal portions.
  9. Add two ounces melted chocolate to one portion and stir well.
  10. Carefully spread white frosting on half the bottom of each cookie, then the other half with chocolate frosting (try to keep them from overlapping, instead let them meet together).
  11. These are good cookies for graduation parties, too, because you can omit the chocolate from both the cookie and the frosting and use icing-colorings to make the frosting the school colors!
