Flaming Arrows

Flaming Arrows Recipe

Makes about 48

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups butter

2 tablespoons butter

1 cup granulated sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 to 2 drops yellow food coloring

1 egg

1/2 cup milk

4 cups all-purpose flour

1 12-ounce can raspberry filling (ie. Solo filling), or raspberry jam

semi-sweet chocolate chips

Method

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Lightly grease cookie sheets or spray with a nonstick
cooking spray.
Bring all ingredients to room temperature.

With an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter, sugar, salt, vanilla and
food
coloring until fluffy. With wooden spoon, stir in egg, then milk and, finally,
the flour.

Dough will be stiff. Place dough in a large (8-inch) pastry bag fitted with
large star tip (we
used number 4). Squeeze dough onto prepared pans, making large tear drop-shaped
strips, about 2 1/2 inches long. Leave 2 inches between cookies. (If a smaller
pastry bag is
used, more dough must be squeezed out to make the shape. Hold the pastry bag
upright
and squeeze a drop of dough onto the cookie sheet. Then bring pastry bag sideways
and
continue piping dough in a straight line -- to
resemble an arrow tip and the arrow shaft.)

Do not fill the pastry bag too full with dough; it is easier to use if not too
full.
Try to make
all the cookies the same size, for even baking.

Bake for 10 minutes, or until lightly browned around edges and just set; the
tops do not
brown.
Transfer to racks; let cool completely. When cookies are cool, turn them
bottom-side up. Spread raspberry filling on bottom side of half of cookies;
top with other
cookies, with bottom sides facing filling, to make sandwich cookies.

Melt chocolate on top of stove or in microwave oven. Dip large end of each cookie
about
1/2 inch into melted chocolate. Transfer to racks or waxed paper until chocolate
sets.

Store cookies in refrigerator.
