Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

Today on The Stay At Home Chef I’m
showing you how to make Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies. These cookies require
just six ingredients to make which makes them super easy and they’re also super
delicious! To start you’ll need 1 cup of softened butter in a mixing bowl and 2/3
of a cup of powdered sugar and we’ll mix this all together using a hand mixer.
It’ll be clumpy at first but you want to continue mixing for a good 60 to 90
seconds until it’s smooth and creamy Before you know it it’ll come together
smooth like so. Then we’ll add in just 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract and
beat this in real quick before we add in 2 cups of all-purpose flour. And we want
to mix this in until it’s combined and it’ll be nice and crumbly. Shortbread
cookie dough is a little bit weird. It’s very crumbly and it doesn’t look like a
normal cookie dough. Instead it looks super dry and crumbly but if you gather
some up and squeeze it together you should be able to press it into a dough. Then you can add in 3/4 cup of mini chocolate chips. It’s
important that they’re mini and then since they’re so small we can give these
a quick stir or a mix to disperse them throughout the dough. Next grab a
gallon-sized resealable plastic bag and you want to transfer all of your
shortbread dough to this plastic bag Then you’ll want to seal the bag and
remove any excess air. Then place the bag on a flat surface like a cutting board. That’ll just make it easier to transfer and spread it all out. Give it a shake so
that it’s in a fairly even layer then grab a rolling pin and gently press the
dough down. Just like when you pinched it in your fingers the dough will suddenly
come together and not look so crumbly Continue to roll it until it’s an even
thickness throughout the bag .Then we’re gonna slide this into the fridge and let
it chill for one to two hours. Now once it’s chilled we’re gonna cut
away the bag so that you have just one kind of rectangle of cookie dough. Then
we’ll go ahead and slice these into our cookies and you can do any
shape that you want. I like to do rectangles so I cut in fours the long
way and then in thirds this way. Then transfer each cut piece to a parchment
lined baking sheet. Now there’s no spreading with this cookie but I still
leave just a little bit of space in between each one. Then we’re gonna bake
these in a 325 degree oven for 18 minutes. After 18 minutes remove the
cookies from the oven and place them on a wire rack to cool completely.
Now the shortbread cookies can be eaten plain but I like to dip mine in
chocolate so you’ll need 8 ounces of chocolate melting wafers and then we’ll
melt these in the microwave. You want this to be nice and melty. You can use chocolate
chips or other options but these melting wafers just melt so beautifully. Then you
just take each cooled cookie and dip it in that chocolate. I just do the ends and
then place it back on the parchment paper so the chocolate can harden. Now of
course you don’t have to dip them in chocolate but I love that extra
chocolate bite. Once they’re cooled and the chocolate is hardened you are ready
to eat! These will stay good for about three to four days, if you don’t eat them
all first! Thanks for watching! You can find the full written recipe in the
