Milk Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Cookies

One of my all time favorite cookies is shortbread cookies. I love the buttery deliciousness of them and could eat way too many of them. But top them with milk chocolate and I’m in trouble. So when my kids and I found this awesome Wilton pan at my favorite store (that would be The Decorette Shop) I knew I had to have it.

So we searched for a yummy Butter Shortbread recipe and found this one on All Recipes.Com. (Great site!)

* 2 cups butter
* 1 cup sugar
* 2 tsp. vanilla
* 4 cups flour

Mix all of the ingredients in a mixer. (How easy is that?!)

You can roll it out and cup shapes with cookie cutters but that’s a ton of work. (And half the joy of this pan!)

Squish the dough in the pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.

Remove from oven and let sit in the pan for about 5 minutes. Then remove to a cooling rack.

Now comes the fun part! Decorate with whatever you have. I melted milk chocolate Guittard Apeels (again from my favorite store). These are so deliciously wonderful and melt great! You can dip the cookies. We also used a pumpkin pan that we had.

You can squeeze out frosting (my kids liked this part.)

This is how my daughter wanted me to decorate the candy corn cookies.

Delicious! And yes, I ate way too many of them. Thank goodness they freeze well or else i would have eaten them all!

RIP weight! This Halloween I’m eating cookies!
