Chocolate Shortbread Cookies

Almost everyone loves shortbread cookies but when you add chocolate to them, they become a whole new sensation. These little cookies taste incredible.


  • 1/2 Cup butter (at room temperature)

  • 1/2 Cup icing sugar

  • 1/2 Tsp. vanilla extract

  • 1 Tsp. water

  • 3/4 Cup all-purpose flour

  • 3 Tbsp. cocoa powder

  • 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter

  • Pinch of salt

  • 1/3 Cup semisweet mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 325° F.

Using a mixer, cream the butter until light and fluffy. Add the icing sugar in two parts, mixing on low speed until ingredients are combined. Increase the speed of the mixer and continue beating until light and fluffy.

Add the vanilla and water and mix until combined.

Sift together the flour, cocoa, cornstarch and salt. Add to the creamed mixture on low speed until combined.

When the dough is pulling away from the sides of the bowl add the chocolate chips. Mix on low speed for half a minute.

Roll the dough on a floured surface 1/4" thick and use your favourite small cookie cutter to cut out shapes (between 1-1 1/2" in diameter).

Place cookies 1" apart on a non-stick cookie sheet and bake for 11-12 minutes. Cool and store in an airtight box.

Makes about 50 small cookies.
