Cookies: Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Beat butter and sugar in medium bowl until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Stir together flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until blended. (If necessary, refrigerate dough until firm enough to handle.)
Roll 1/4 cup (50 mL) portions of dough into balls. Place 3 portions on an ungreased cookie sheet at a time (cookies spread while baking). Insert wooden popsicle stick about three quarters of the way into side of each ball; flatten slightly.
Bake for 13 to 15 minutes or until outside edges are lightly browned and centre is set. Cool several minutes on cookie sheet; remove to wire rack. Cool completely.
Chocolate Drizzle: Place chocolate chips and shortening in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave at MEDIUM (50%) for 30 seconds; stir. If necessary, microwave at MEDIUM for an additional 10 seconds at a time, stirring after each heating, until chocolate is melted when stirred. Decorate cookies with Chocolate Drizzle and assorted frostings, sugars and small candies to make Valentine cookies.
