PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

COMBINE 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar and butter in large mixer bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg and almond extract; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, cream of tartar and baking soda. Continue beating until well mixed. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Roll balls into 2-inch ropes; shape into half moons. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE for 8 to 10 minutes or until set. (Cookies do not brown.) Cool on baking sheets 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

LINE baking sheets with waxed paper. Melt morsels and shortening in small saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Dip half of each cookie into chocolate; place on prepared baking sheets. Let stand until chocolate is set. Sprinkle remaining half with powdered sugar. Store between sheets of waxed paper in covered containers.

I had been looking for this recipe for a while, and was delighted to find it here. Thanks!! It's a great recipe and everyone loved it. I'm glad I didn't make a double batch. .I would have had far to many!

Chocolate Dipped Moons

Thought it was a delicious cookie, the chocolate made it so heavenly. Only thing while I melted the chocolate over the stove, the chocolate seized. My 7 year old daughter told me to melt the chocolate in the microwave as I usually do, and everything worked out.

I was looking for a dessert to serve for Easter dinner to 30+ people and came across this recipe. I baked the cookies in my Culinary Arts Vo-Tech class and it was a hit!!!
