Hello Everyone, welcome or welcome back to my blog! Today I am really excited to share another cookie recipe with you guys!
💜 A few weeks ago, my school was hosting a cookie drive, “cookies for a cause”. The idea was to bake any cookie you wanted, and donate it to a church nearby. I was thrilled to participate, since it meant that I could spend the day baking, packaging and delivering the cookies. In the end, I was able to bake around 30 cookies with this recipe! 💜
Since I wanted to have fun, but still do something new, I decided to bake shortbread cookies. This was my second time baking eggless cookies, but my first time baking cookies that didn’t spread. I had a blast making these, because it felt a lot like playing with playdoh, between rolling the dough and cutting out shapes. I also liked how you could go any direction with the decorating… I decided to go with melted chocolate on one side, covered in colorful sprinkles.
When I finally tasted one a few hours later, I was very surprised to find that they tasted a lot like Milano’s. I think it’s because they included basically the same components– shortbread cookies and chocolate. I was really happy that I could create a very similar version of a cookie I loved, right here at home. Overall, I think this recipe was a huge success. It is perfect for anyone who loves buttery cookies and chocolate.
Let’s get started with the recipe!
- 2 1/4 cups salted butter
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
- 3/4 cup white, granulated sugar
- 3 tsp. vanilla extract
- 5 cups all-purpose flour
- 12 oz. chocolate chips + sprinkles
- KitchenAid Mixer w/ Paddleboat Attachment
- Measuring Cups and Spoons
- Baking Pan & 2 Sheets of Parchment Paper
- Spatula, Rolling Pin, Cookie Cutters or Bowl
- Microwave Safe Bowl & Spoon
- In the KitchenAid Mixer, using the Paddleboat attachment, cream together 2 CUPS of softened butter, the sugars and vanilla.
- Add in the all-purpose flour in 5 intervals, so that it doesn’t spill over the side, and so that it can mix together more easily.
- At this point if the dough is too crumbly, you can add in some more butter. I added about 4 tbsp. of softened butter.
- On a sheet of parchment paper, using the rolling pin, roll the dough around 1/2 in. thick. I preferred to split the dough in 4 sections and work in batches.
- Cut out shapes using cookie cutters. I decided to use a bowl to make circles.
- Cover a baking pan in parchment paper, and use a spatula to transfer the cut cookies onto the baking pan. Place about 1/2 in. apart since they do not spread.
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and bake the cookies for 14 minutes. They should be white on top and golden/brown on the bottom.
- Immediately remove them from the hot pan, once the cookies come out of the oven, and let them cool for about 20 minutes.
- In a microwave safe bowl, heat up some chocolate for about 1 minute. I preferred to work in two batches, so that my chocolate didn’t cool over time.
- Mix chocolate with a spoon, and drizzle/ spread over one half of the cookie. Sprinkle some sprinkles on top, and set them carefully on some parchment paper.
- Let the cookies cool in the fridge for 20 minutes.
