Chocolate Butter Cookies

Every year around this time the stores stock tins of Danish Butter Cookies. I came across tins of these cookies in every store and decided to buy a large tin.  Originally, these cookies were going to be placed in small decorated plastic bags and placed in gift baskets. Instead of plain butter cookies, why not dip them in chocolate and make them a little more special?  I melted the chocolate in my Wilton Chocolate Pro and dipped one end of the cookie in chocolate and set it aside on a silicon baking mat to harden. I used about a cup of chocolate melting wafers for a 2 pound tin of cookies. Once the chocolate has hardened the cookies will be placed back in the original tin until time to package them for gift giving.
