"Perfect little shortbread cookies. Dip them in chocolate and top with nuts, coconut, and crushed candy canes. Not too sweet and a great Christmas cookie! Freezes well and dough can be made a day or two ahead. These are good plain, or you can melt some chocolate chips (milk, semi-sweet, or white) and dip one end of the cookie. You can then dip the chocolate end in chopped nuts, crushed candy canes, coconut, jimmies, or decorating sugar. Or, add a little grated orange peel or chopped candied ginger to the chocolate when you melt it for another great flavor. Place on waxed paper to harden."

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Beat butter in a large bowl until creamy and fluffy. Mix flour, confectioners' sugar, and vanilla extract into the creamed butter to form a dough. Roll dough into walnut-sized balls and arrange on the prepared baking sheet. Press the dough balls with the bottom of a glass until dough is flattened to 1/2-inch thick.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are light brown, 10 to 13 minutes.

What a great cookie. I love the shape and chocolate dopped end can be sprinkled with anything. We used Christmas sprinkles. I had already made one butter cookie so instead of vanilla I used almond extract. It was fabulous! Thanks for such a great cookie!

Followed the recipe just as instructed. These cookies taste great and are incredibly easy to make. It made about 65 cookies(plus whatever my 3 year old ate as I was placing the balls of dough on the sheet). We added dried cranberries because they had been in the pantry for a while and 1/2 cup m&m's that were left from Easter. They seem like they would taste great with crushed nuts too.
