Chocolate Dipped Shortbread

Chocolate dipped shortbread
This is one of those recipes that you probably already have all the ingredients to right in your pantry. It mainly requires butter, sugar and flour – and oh yeah, chocolate. What sensible person doesn’t always have a stash of chocolate in their cupboard? This is a Barefoot Contessa recipe and it does not disappoint. It’s so simple, but so good. Plus, it makes adorable Christmas cookies that look very festive and would be perfect for gifting.
