Shortbread cookies are super simple to make and you just need 5 ingredients.
1 cup butter, room temperature
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
2/3 cup mini chocolate chips
Beat butter and powdered sugar until it is light and fluffy. Stir in vanilla.
Add in the flour and stir in until it is combined. Fold in the mini chocolate chips.
I used a green bowl and green spatula. I apologize for the blah picture.
Transfer the dough to a gallon sized zipper top bag. Use a rolling pin and roll the dough to 1/4 thick. Refrigerate the dough for 1 to 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Cut the dough into squares or rectangles. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes.
Once the cookies have cooled they can be dipped into some melted chocolate and placed on some parchment paper to harden.
These cookies would be an awesome addition to an afternoon tea.
