1 cup margarine, softened

8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened

1 tsp. vanilla

1 egg

2 ¼ cups flour

1 pkg. (3 ¾ oz.) instant pistachio flavored pudding and pie filling mix

1 tsp. baking powder

½ tsp. salt

3 oz. (3 squares) semi-sweet chocolate or ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

In large bowl, beat sugar, margarine and cream cheese until light and fluffy.  Add vanilla and egg; beat well. 

In medium bowl, combine flour, pudding mix, baking powder and  salt.  Add flour mixture to cream cheese mixture; mix well.  Cover with plastic wrap; refrigerate at least 1 hour for easier handling.

Preheat oven to 350 F.   Grease cookie sheets.  Shape teaspoonfuls of dough into 1 ½ inch fingers.  Place on prepared cookie sheets.  Bake at 350 F. for 9 to 12 minutes or until set.  Cool completely.
