Chocolate Dipped Shortbread Cookies

This post is for my Mom who left us much too early. What is cool about this recipe is that it is from a great Mom who cooks and bakes for her beautiful family! I think that’s fitting soooooooo, What’s For Dinner Moms?!
My Mom made me shortbread cookies every Christmas! She always found a pretty round tin container with a decorative lid. She would line it with wax paper and put layers of giant round shortbread cookies that she scored to look like pieces of pie.
Now, if you knew my Mom you would know how HUGE that was! She COULD cook and bake BUT she really didn’t like to. Complete opposite of me! She made those cookies for me only because she knew just how much I loved them! Thanks Mom!
I don’t have her recipe so I thought that another Mom’s recipe would be just as great! I mean, have you seen how beautiful they look? I think crushed candy canes would look super festive!

What's for Dinner Moms?

‘Tis the season! Cookies, cookies, and more cookies! Today is a perfect day for us to stay in and bake cookies. We have a nice fluffy 3″ of snow on the ground and are expecting at least 6″ during the day. Beautiful day to stay in and watch it snow while we bake.

I am always looking for cookies that are easy to make, taste good, and look great. These cover all three. My daughter made the cookies early one day and later in the evening we dipped them in chocolate. Add sprinkles, nuts, or crushed candy to decorate as you wish.


These were super simple to make and decorate. They have a moist texture that was not dry at all. Store the cookies layered with wax paper in a sealed container for us to 5 days.

Tip: Cut the cookies before you bake them. They will be easier…
