Cookie Week – Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Stars

Recipe for shortbread cookies dipped in chocolate

The Oreos may have been my favorite new cookie of the season, but these little shortbreads are a holiday staple at our house. And when I say Holiday, I mean Valentine’s, Easter, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, my Birthday… They just have that perfect sweet and salty mixture that makes them absolutely delicious!
Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Stars
Makes 4 dozen

1 cup softened butter
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 cups flour
1 t. vanilla
1/2 t. salt

Optional :
3 oz chocolate
1 t. canola oil

Cream the butter, sugar and vanilla.
Slowly add the flour and salt.
Wrap dough and chill for at least 2 hours.
Roll out dough and shape with cookie cutters.
Place cutouts on a baking sheet and chill about 30 min.
(I chill one sheet while I’m rolling out the next batch)
Bake at 300 degrees for 18 minutes.
Melt chocolate with oil in a double boiler, and dunk or drizzle cookies once have cooled.
