These cookies look so fancy and impressive, but guess what? They only require a handful of ingredients and are super easy to make. You’ve got to love that! On top of all that, they are also super tasty. These are great for a tea party, baby shower, brunch, or just for a regular old treat. We’ve dipped these cookies in melted chocolate, but you also don’t have to dip them in chocolate at all. It adds a fun and fancy finishing touch and a higher chocolate content, but you can also have these cookies plain as well.

Do I need a stand mixer to make Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

You will need either a hand mixer or a stand mixer for this recipe to adequate beat together the butter and powdered sugar. 

Chocolate Chips:

We love adding chocolate chips to our shortbread cookies, but you can always make a plain shortbread cookie without them. 

Can I use cookie cutters? 

These cookies hold their shape which means you can cut them in squares or rectangles as shown, or you can use cookie cutters to come up with your own shape. Smaller cookie cutters may require a slightly shorter cooking time so be sure to watch them closely.
