Dark Chocolate Shortbread cookies
Here is a repost from 2009 - one of my classic cookie recipe - Enjoy
3 cups unbleached flour
3 sticks on unsalted butter, room temp
1 1/2 cup raw sugar
1 cup of Green and Blacks cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
In the stand mixer cream together the butter and the sugar until light and fluffy.
In large bowl whisk together the dry ingredients.
Turning the mixer to low slowly add the dry ingredients to the butter and the sugar. Once all combined turn out, shape into a ball, wrap in plastic and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours.
Preheat oven to 300 degrees
Cut the dough into quarters; roll out to about 1/4 inch thick and cut with the cookie cut of choice. Place cookies on a parchment lined cookie sheet and back for about 20 to 25 minutes, the cookies should be firm to touch. Remove and place cookies on a rack to cool.
You can also dip these cookies in white chocolate if you want a little more sweetness to the cookies.
