I found this recipe in Parenting magazine.
And since it is still cold outside, I decided to make them for a snack today.
These hot chocolate shortbread cookies are YUMMY!
I can tell because Riley has eaten three already. ;-)
And because it is so cold, we decided they would be even more yummy dunked IN hot cocoa!
Here is the recipe in case you want to make these:
Hot Chocolate Shortbread
2 cups flour
1/3 cup instant hot cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
12 Tbs. butter, softened (I used light margarine & they still tasted good)
1/2 cup sugar
1 tube of vanilla frosting
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13 baking pan with foil and pray lightly with cooking spray.
2. Combine flour, salt, and hot cocoa powder in a bowl. Beat the butter & sugar in a separate bowl with a mixer until light and fluffy. (about 3 minutes) Add egg & beat well. Gradually add flour mixture and mix until combined.
3. Spread the dough out evenly in the prepared pan. Bake until firm to the touch, about 30 - 35 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes. Lift the foil and shortbread from pan and place it on a cutting board. Cut into 3/4 inch long pieces. After the cookies have cooled, dot them with frosting.
