Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Cookies
Shortbread cookies are a classic holiday treat. But when you dip them into melted chocolate — it can only make a good thing better!
- 1 cup butter
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 cups flour
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 6 ounces chocolate chips, melted
- Coconut flakes, optional
Preheat oven to 350 F. Cream the butter and sugar together, then add vanilla and flour and mix until combined into a dough. Taking 1/2″ of the dough at a time, roll into a ball with your hands and then roll in some sugar and place on a cookie sheet. Using the tines of a fork, flatten cookies. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Dip half of each cookie into melted chocolate, then set on a wire rack (with parchment paper underneath to catch dips) to set cookie. Quickly sprinkle with optional coconut flakes before chocolate sets. Once everything has cooled, serve and enjoy!
