With oiled hands roll dough into 2-inch balls (about 2 tablespoons); place on prepared baking sheet about 3 inches apart. Flatten in crisscross pattern with floured fork to about 1/2-inch thickness. Bake at 375º F. for 9 to 11 minutes or until cookies begin to look dry on top. (Cookies will not be brown.) Remove from oven; cool 2 minutes. Remove cookies to cooling racks with metal spatula. Cool completely.
  3. For dip, microwave chocolate chips in microwave safe bowl until melted, about 1 minute. Add 1 1/2 tablespoons shortening; stir until blended. Dip half of each cookie in the melted chocolate mixture. Cool on wax paper in refrigerator until set.
