2 cups powdered sugar

2 teaspoons vanilla
4 ounces semisweet baking chocolate -- melted and cooled
1/2 teaspoon shortening
Creamy Frosting -- (recipe follows)
3 cups powdered sugar

Heat oven to 325. Beat powdered sugar and butter in large bowl with
electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, or mix with
spoon. Stir in flour, cocoa and vanilla.
Roll half of dough at a time 1/2 inch thick on lightly floured surface.
Cut into 3-inch rounds. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie
sheet. Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until firm (cookies should not be dark
brown). Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely.

Spread each cookie with about 1 teaspoon frosting. Immediately make
three concentric circles on frosting with melted chocolate. Starting at
center, draw a toothpick through chocolate circles to make spider web
design. Let stand until chocolate is firm.

milk. Beat with spoon until smooth and spreadable.
