This is a great small batch shortbread cookie! Very easy to put together and by varying the extract you can easily change the taste. Adding half a teaspoon of almond extract made these even better! I simply scooped dough and then pressed with some sugar. Some in family preferred without the chocolate. Others insist on chocolate! As a volunteer editor for Taste of Home, I love classic recipes that I can easily put together with simple ingredients.
I loved the ease of this recipe! Instead of rolling the dough into balls, I used a small cookie scoop. The consistency of the dough was perfect for this and the scoops pressed down into nice round circles with the sugar-coated glass.
Butter, sugar, vanilla and flour. What could be easier? The simple taste melts in your mouth. I dipped half of the cookie in the chocolate and set in on waxed paper to harden. I like the smaller cookie recipes so I won't be tempted to eat them all!
