How to make it

  • In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in vanilla.
  • Combine flour and cocoa and add gradually to the butter mixture.
  • Spoon the dough out on a floured surface. Roll out to about 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with a 3-inch cookie cutter. For Valentine's you can use a heart-shaped cutter, for Thanksgiving a pumpkin, for Christmas a star, etc.
  • Place cookie cut outs 2 inches apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 375F oven for 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool.
  • In a microwave-safe bowl, heat white chocolate chips and 1-1/2 tbsp. shortening until melted. Stop and stir every 35-40 seconds.
  • Dip both sides of cookies into melted white chocolate mixture (refer to pictures), or spread melted white chocolate on both sides of cookies using a small rubber spatula. . Place dipped cookies on parchment paper. Sprinkle with seasonal sprinkles (in this case I used red Valentine's ones). *Note: if the chocolate mixture stiffenes, warm it up again.
  • In another microwave-safe bowl, heat the semi-sweet chocolate chips and remaining 1 tbsp. shortening until melted, using the same process. Drizzle this mixture over the cookies using a small spoon. Let the chocolate dry somewhat, then transfer cookies to the fridge in batches for the chocolate to complitely harden. As it hardens, carefully remove cookies from parchment to a storage container.

    ive been looking for something to bake, for when i fix my oven. i havent been around lately, because i started a facebook page, and doing ebay. ive been buying cast iron. i just got a neat old staub brand fondue pot that would work well for melting chocolate.

I'm so glad I found this - they look incredible...so festive with the white chocolate edges, and only a few ingredients to make the delicious sounding cookie.

    I love butter cookies, and I love chocolate, and these look, finally, like a chocolate butter cookie that won't be flavorless and dusty. Must. Try. Soon.
