we like to share! to dust and sprinkle and melt chocolate ...So this was the result from one funny afternoon ..mixing the flours with butter and being creative with toppings!
heres the recipe!
Shortbread Cookies:
2 cups (260 grams) all-purpose
1/4 teaspoon (2 grams) salt
1 cup (2 sticks) (226 grams) unsalted
butter, room temperature
1/2 cup (60 grams) powdered (confectioners or icing)
1 teaspoon (4 grams) pure
vanilla extract

Adapted from the joy of baking website

the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), cream the butter
until smooth (about 1 minute). Add the sugar and beat until smooth (about 2 minutes). Beat in the vanilla extract. Gently stir in the flour mixture just until incorporated. Flatten the dough into a disk shape, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill the dough for at least an hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) with the rack in the middle of the oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
On a lightly floured surface roll out the dough to 1/4 inch (.5 cm) thick. Cut into rounds or whatever shapes you wish using lightly floured cookie cutter. Place the cookies on the prepared baking sheet and place in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes. This will firm up the dough so the cookies will maintain their shape when baked. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes, or until cookies are lightly brown. Cool on rack.
Shortbread with keep in an airtight container for about a week or frozen for several months.
Makes about 20 shortbread cookies.

Now be creative melt some swiss chocolate and sprinkle!
