Half Hearted Valentine Cookies

* 3/4 cup sugar
* 1 cup butter, softened
* 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
* 1 egg
* 1 teaspoon peppermint extract
* 3 cups all-purpose flour
* 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
* 1/4 cup butter

In large mixer bowl, combine all cookie ingredients except flour. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until light and fluffy. Add flour, beat until mixed. Divide dough into halves. Wrap in waxed paper. Refrigerate until firm, at least 2 hours.
Heat oven to 375 F. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut out with floured heart shaped cutters. Place 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 7 to 10 minutes, or until edges are very lightly browned. Remove immediately; cool completely.
For glaze, in a small saucepan, melt chocolate and butter, stirring occasionally, over low heat until melted (4 to 6 minutes). Dip half of each heart into chocolate. Refrigerate on waxed paper lined cookie sheet until firm. Store covered, in refrigerator.
