I started out with a simple, standard shortbread recipe. Then things got a little crazy!
|YAY for the Better Homes and Gardens Bridal Addition Cookbook! |
Here is the results:
Delicious, buttery melt in your mouth chocolate covered shortbread.
Here's the Recipe:
Milk Chocolate Covered Shortbread
1 1/4 Cups All-Purpose Flour
3 Tablespoons Granulated Sugar
1/2 Cup Butter
Melted Chocolate -- As Much Or As Little As You Want!
***In order to fill a 9" by 9" pan, like I did, you will have to double the shortbread recipe***
Preheat the oven to 325. While preheating, mix flour and sugar. Slowly cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs and starts to cling. Knead and form into a ball. Place in an ungreased 9" by 9" pan. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the bottom starts to brown and the centre is set. While baking, begin to melt your chocolate. Make sure to stir it constantly so it doesn't burn. Once the shortbread is done, let it stand for about five minutes, and then coat with the melted chocolate. Set in the fridge overnight.
