Day 13 of 24 Days of Christmas

Hello Everyone,

Today is a recipe that I want to share with you. It's getting down to the wire and I'm going to have to start baking.

Holiday Chocolate Shortbread Cookies

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1-1/4 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup Hershey's Dutch Processed Cocoa or Hershey's Cocoa
1-3/4 cups all purpose flour
1-2/3 cups (10 ounce package) Hershey's Premier White Chips

Makes about 4-1/2 dozen

Heat oven to 300 degrees. Beat butter, powdered sugar and vanilla in large bowl until creamy. Add cocoa; beat until well blended. Gradually add flour, stirring until smooth.

Roll or pat dough to 1/4 inch thickness on lightly floured surface or between 2 pieces of wax paper. Cut into holiday shapes using star, tree, wreath or other cookie cutters. Reroll dough scraps, cutting cookies until dough is used. Place on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake 15 to 20 minutes or just until firm. Immediately place white chips, flat side down, in decorative design on warm cookies. Cool slightly; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely. Store in airtight container.

Just a little note, for more even baking, place similar shapes and sizes on your cookies on same cookie sheet.

Don't forget any cookies you make for Christmas would also make a great gift for your loved ones.

Happy Crafting and Baking Everyone,
