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.
