   1 1/2 c  Firmly-packed brown sugar
     2/3 c  Crisco shortening
       1 tb Water
       1 ts Vanilla
       2    Eggs

   1. Preheat oven to 375F (190C). Place sheets of foil on
   countertop for cooling cookies.
   2. For cookies, combine brown sugar, shortening, water and
   vanilla in large bowl. Beat at medium speed of electric
   mixer until well blended. Beat eggs into creamed mixture.
   3. Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Mix into
   creamed mixture at low speed just until blended. Stir in
   chocolate chips.
   4. Drop rounded tablespoonfuls (15 mL) of dough 2 inches (5
   cm) apart onto ungreased baking sheet.
   5. Bake one baking sheet at a time at 375F (190C) for 7
   to 9 minutes, or until cookies are set. DO NOT OVERBAKE.
   Cool 2 minutes on baking sheet. Remove cookies to foil to
   cool completely.
   6. For icing, place white chocolate chips and shortening in
   heavy resealable sandwich bag. Seal. Microwave at 50%
   (MEDIUM) power. Knead bag after 1 minute. Repeat until
   smooth (or melt by placing bag in bowl of hot water). Cut
   tiny tip off corner of bag. Pipe thin stripes on cookies.
