       Title: Chocolate-Gilded Danish Sugar Cones
  Categories: Cookies, Chocolate
       Yield: 16 servings
     1/2 c  Butter or margarine,                1 ts Vanilla
            -softened                           3 oz Bittersweet chocolate
     1/2 c  Sugar                                    -OR
     1/2 c  All-purpose flour                 1/2 c  Semisweet chocolate chips
       2    Egg whites                     
   Preheat oven to 400'F. Generously grease 4 cookie sheets. Beat butter and
   sugar in large bowl until light and fluffy. Blend in flour. In clean, dry
   bowl, beat egg whites until frothy. Blend into butter mixture with vanilla.
   Using measuring teaspoon, place 4 mounds of dough, 4 apart, on each
   prepared cookie sheet. Spread mounds with back of spoon dipped in water to
   3 diameter. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, 5-6 minutes or until edges are just
   barely golden. (Do not overbake or cookies become crisp too quickly and are
   difficult to shape.) Remove from oven and quickly loosen each cookie from
   cookie sheet with thin spatula. Shape each into a cone; cones become firm
   as they cool. (If cookies become too firm to shape, return to oven for a
   few seconds to soften.)
   Melt chocolate in small bowl over hot, not boiling, water. Stir until
   smooth. When all cookies are baked and cooled, dip flared ends into melted
   chocolate. Let stand until chocolate is set. If desired, serve cones by
   standing them in a bowl. (Adding about 1 of sugar to bottom of bowl may be
   necessary to hold them upright.)
