Cream Cheese Filled Cookies

These cookies were SO good. I got the recipe from

1/3 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

8 oz cream cheese, softened
2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
(I halved the filling recipe and it was just enough.)

3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips melted

In a large bowl cream the butter, shortening, and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in egg and vanilla, beat again.
Mix in flour, baking powder and salt. Refrigerate for 2 hours.
I used my cookie scoop and then pressed them down a bit.
Bake at 375 for 11-13 minutes. Immediately after removing them from the oven make an indention in the middle with the back of a wooden spoon.
Beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Spread on cookies.
For the chocolate topping I put the chocolate chips in a Ziploc bag and put in the microwave. Heated in 30 second increments until it was melted enough and drizzle the cookies. Enjoy. Keep in fridge.
