Icicle Ornament Cookies


2 1/2 cups flour
1/4 teas. salt
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) butter, soft
2 squares (1 oz. each) white chocolate, melted
1 egg
1 teas. vanilla
Coarse white decorating sugar, colored sugars and decors
ribbon
Combine flour and salt in medium bowl. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl until fluffy. Beat in melted white chocolate, egg and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture. Beat until well blended. Shape dough into disc. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes or until firm.
Preheat oven to 350. Grease cookie sheets. Shape heaping tablespoonfuls of dough into 10-inch ropes. Fold each rope in half; twist to make the icicle shape, leaving opening at top and tapering ends. Roll in coarse sugar; sprinkle with colored sugars and decors as desired. Place 1-inch apart on prepared cookie sheets.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes. (do not brown). Cool on cookie sheets. 1 minute. Remove to wire racks; cool completely. Pull ribbon through opening in top of each icicle; tie small knot in ribbon ends. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen cookies.
