Yesterday I made regular, tasty, melt in your mouth shortbread cookies. Today I bring you chocolate shortbread cookies!Just as delicious, still Christmasy and perfect for your holiday cookie exchange. Change it up with sprinkles and a drizzle of chocolate and make someone smile 🙂
So go ahead and start those ovens! Another cookie is ready to be made…
Note: Recipe can easily be doubled if needed
What you will need:
Cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup unsalted butter at room temp
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Sprinkles, chocolate, other decorations of your choice
In a bowl, whisk together the flour, salt and cocoa. In another bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until soft and creamy. Slowly beat in flour mixture until dough is formed.
Place dough in plastic wrap and roll into a log. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Using a sharp knife, cut log into 1/4 inch cookies and place on prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 12-14 minutes. Allow to cool a bit on cookie sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Once cooled, dip in chocolate and decorate with sprinkles. Or decorate by melting white chocolate and drizzling that over top. Enjoy!
Store covered at room temp or in the fridge.
