1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

3 teaspoons solid vegetable shortening
1 1/4 cups semisweet chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350 F.

Cookies:
Melt the chocolate in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally until smooth. Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a bowl. Beat butter and sugars in bowl until creamy. Beat in egg, whites, chocolate and vanilla. At low speed, gradually beat in flour mixture until combined. Drop dough by slightly rounded teaspoonfuls on large ungreased baking sheet.

Bake in 350 F. oven for 8 to 10 minutes. Let stand for 2 minutes. Remove cookies to rack to cool.

Dip half the cookies into white chocolate, and other half into semisweet chocolate. Use spatula to spread chocolate evenly. Let excess chocolate drip off; set cookies on wire racks to dry. When coating is dried, drizzle tops with contrasting color of chocolate. Let stand to set.
