Description

Deliciously tender and buttery chocolate shortbread cookies topped with chocolate glaze and holiday sprinkles.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE COOKIES:
  • 18 Tablespoons Butter, Softened (18 Tablespoons Is 2 1/4 Sticks)
  • ¾ cups Sugar
  • ⅓ cups Cocoa Powder
  • 2 cups Flour
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • FOR THE GLAZE:
  • 2 Tablespoons Cocoa Powder
  • 1-½ cup Powdered Sugar
  • ¼ cups Hot Water
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • Holiday Sprinkles

Preparation

Preheat oven to 325 F. Line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In the bowl of a stand-mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the cocoa, followed by the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder.

Using a small cookie scoop or a spoon, scoop the dough into equal-sized portions and roll them into balls. Slightly flatten each ball into a disc-like shape (because they don’t spread out on their own much) and place on the baking sheet.

Bake for 15 minutes, or until set and cracked on top, but still soft. Remove the pans from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on the pans for about 5 minutes before moving them to a cooling rack to cool completely. Place the cooling racks over a sheet of parchment paper or newspaper to catch the glaze.

To make the glaze, put a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk together the cocoa, powdered sugar, hot water, and vanilla and heat and stir just until the mixture is smooth and well combined. Remove pan from the heat and set aside to cool for about 10 minutes while the cookies finish cooling.

Using a teaspoon, spoon the glaze onto the center of each cookie, allowing some of it to drizzle over the sides. Immediately follow with the sprinkles (don’t wait too long or the glaze will set and the sprinkles won’t stick). Repeat with remaining cookies. Allow glaze to set about 30 minutes before serving/storing.
