Introduction: Shortbread Cookies
Ingredients (for about 20 double cookies):
* 1 cup all purpose flour (130 g)
* 1/2 cup butter (113 g)
* 1/4 cup powdered sugar (30 g)
* 1 tsp vanilla extract
* 80 g semi sweet chocolate chips
Step 1: Step 1: Make the Dough
Beat the butter until smooth and creamy (better use and electric mixer if you have one…it’s not an easy job by hand)
Add the powdered sugar and beat until smooth (about 2 min)
Gently stir in the flour and mix until incorporated.
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour (the more the best).
Step 2: Step 2: Shape It, Bake It!
On a slightly floured surface roll out the dough into a 1/4 inch (0.6 cm) thick circle and using a cookie cutter cut it round or other shapes.
Place on baking sheet and refrigerate for other 15 min.
Meanwhile preheat oven at 180 C. Bake your cookies for about 10 min.
Let them cool down on a wire rack.
Step 3: Step 3: Chocolate It!
Put the chocolate chips in our microwave and….
…well, microwave it till melted (40 sec)
Step 4: Step 4: Dress It
Take one cookie and spread on it some chocolate then close with another cookie.
Refrigerate for about 20 min or until the chocolate has hardened.
