These are some of my favorite Christmas cookies! My Mom has made these shortbread cookies every year for as long as I can remember. I used to love (and still do) helping her bake then dip them in chocolate. This year, Asher got to help and had so much fun. These cookies are so simple yet classic.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (for dipping)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In the bowl of a stand mixer (or in a large bowl if using a handheld mixer), beat together butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Then add the flour and beat just until everything is combined. Then add in the mini chocolate chips and mix for a few seconds.

Using a small cookie scooper (1 tablespoon size), scoop the dough onto a lined baking sheet. Β Then, use the bottom of a glass cup to gently press the dough into a flat circle. Bake the cookies for about 8 to 10 minutes. Once the cookies are done, remove from the oven and allow them to cool.

Meanwhile, melt the chocolate chipsΒ in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds, followed by 15 second intervals until fully melted and smooth. Once the cookies are cool enough to handle, dip half the cookie in chocolate and then place on wax paper until chocolate has hardened.
