How to make Double Chocolate Shortbread Cookies

The dough for these cookies is simple to make. First, cream together butter and sugar. Then, add vanilla and salt. Stir well. Next, add egg and egg yolk and stir to combine. Then, add flour, cocoa and white chocolate chips. Mix until dough forms.

Roll the dough out into log and wrap in plastic wrap or parchment paper. Press sides down on counter to form into a square. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours or until very firm. Slice into 1/3″ slices and place on a baking sheet.

Bake cookies at 325 degrees for 12 minutes. Cool on sheet pan for a couple minutes then cool fully on wire rack. Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

NOTE: Dough can be made in advance and stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week before baking.

Recipe modifications

  • Try orange or peppermint extract instead of vanilla for a delicious twist on this recipe.
  • Swap the white chocolate chips for any combination of white chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, nuts, mint chips or peanut butter chips, etc. Use 1 cup combined.
  • Roll sides of dough in coconut before baking.
  • Dip in chocolate for even more chocolate flavor.
