Chocolate leaf cookies

I'm looking for a recipe for leaf cookies, dipped in chocolate, like the ones that are often kosher for Passover. The recipe doesn't have to be kosher for Passover (it's for an autumn-themed party), but it should be pareve. Any help would be appreciated!

    1. Why would you need a specific recipe? I'd think that any recipe for rolled cookies would work when dunked in chocolate, as long as you have a leaf-shaped cookie cutter.

      1. Did you ever get a good reply? Although some bakeries use a basic rolled cookie recipe, it's not the real thing. The real cookie is not just a Xmas sugar cookie. I would love to get a real recipe.

        1. They are called Spritz cookies. Originally they are made with butter, but pareve margarine or Crisco (in Yiddish "Kriskoh") can be substituted. They are formed with a cookie press. An all metal cookie press will last forever. Check the templates to see if there is a leaf shape among them. You usually get a heart, diamond, wreath, butterfly, and a long ridged strip which can be cut into rectangles or diamonds. It's fun to quickly squeeze out a whole tray of cookies. There are recipes online for the stiff dough needed.

            The Passover leaf cookies are nothing like Spritz cookies. The Passover ones are very, very thin, and definitely cut out after being rolled flat. They are probably no more than 1/16 inch thin. Spritz cookies are among my favorite, but they are not at all the same as what the OP was asking about.
