Chocolate Shortbread!

This is the recipe for my amazing chocolate shortbread it is so yummy like heaven in your mouth! I made a batch with my sister yesterday and it was truly scrumptious!



Ingredients

  • 250g icing sugar
  • 50g Dutch process cocoa powder
  • 450g plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 350g unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 175g chopped semisweet chocolate

       Method

1.
Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas mark 4.
2.
In a large bowl, stir together the icing sugar, cocoa, flour and salt until well blended. Cut in the butter until lumps are no larger than peas. Add eggs and vanilla; mix until a stiff dough forms. It may take a minute to come together.
3.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out dough to .5cm thickness and cut into desired shapes using biscuit cutters. If the dough is too sticky, chill for a little bit. Place biscuits 5cm apart onto an ungreased baking tray.
4.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the surface appears dry. Allow biscuits to cool for a couple minutes on the baking tray before removing to wire racks to cool completely. When biscuits are completely cool- then decorate!

Enjoy your chocolatey goodness
