Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Meltaways
Can you believe it?! I'm actually posting a blog! I have just been busy with this and that and haven't really been feeling "the blog" lately. However, I thought I would share this yummy little cookie recipe. It would go great on a Christmas cookie plate. These Shortbread Meltaways are light and melt in your mouth delicious. I dipped some in chocolate and left some plain. Very good either way!
1 c. butter, softened(do not use margarine)
1/2 c. confectioner's sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 c. all-purpose flour
2/3 c. cornstarch
chocolate almond bark
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and confectioner's sugar. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour and cornstarch; gradually add to creamed mixture. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 11-13 minutes or until bottoms are lightly browned. Cool for 5 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Meanwhile, melt about 1/2 package of almond bark according to package directions. Dip half of cookie in chocolate. Let cool.
**I think this recipe makes about 3 dozen cookies. The amount is not on my original recipe and I forgot to count them.
