Chocolate-Dipped Shortbread Cookies

This is has been my go-to Christmas cookie recipe for years! I have no idea why I haven’t posted it sooner. I’ve made the cookies extra festive with the addition of the melted chocolate.

Makes about 36 (depending on the size of your cookie cutter)

1 cup all-purpose flour (I used white… but it’s Christmas!)

1/2 cup Corn Starch

1/2 cup icing sugar

3/4 cup  (unsalted) butter, softened

1 Cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

2 tsp canola oil

Preheat your oven to 300.

Combine the flour, cornstarch and icing sugar in a large mixing bowl and then mix in the butter, mix all ingredients by hand.

This may look dry at first but just keep mixing until dough forms (about 5 minutes – don’t add anything else!).

Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes if it’s too soft to work with.

Roll out the dough on a slightly floured counter with a slightly floured rolling pin until it’s a ¼ inch thick.

Cut out the cookies using a cookie cutter or roll into golf ball sized ball and flatten with a fork.

Bake for 15 – 18 minutes; you want them cooked with no colour though.

Leave the cookies to cool on the baking sheet.

Meanwhile prepare the chocolate; Bring some water to a boil and then drop it to a simmer.

Place the chocolate chips and oil in a bowl (large enough to sit on top of the simmering water – not in the water) and place over the simmering water (makeshift double boiler);mix until combined.

Once the cookies are cooled, dip them into the melted chocolate; this is important otherwise they will fall apart from the weight (trust me).

If you have some chocolate leftover, try dipping pretzels in it and just lay them on parchment/wax paper to cool… yum!

Notes:

  1. Feel free to switch up the type of chocolate chips you use.
  2. If you’re feeling extra festive you can sprinkle sprinkles on the cookies while the chocolate is still wet.
  3. T-minus 15 days!!!
