M&M Shortbread Cookies

Some cookies for my son to bring to school Christmas party celebration. His school holiday starts at 19 Nov, so the school decided to bring forward their Christmas celebration and was requested to bring some finger food to school on that day to share with their friends. I guess all kids will be thrill to have chocolate treats.

210g plain flour, sifted
50g cornflour, sifted
100g chocolate chips
226g butter (room temperature)
60g icing sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
Some M&M chocolate for deco

  • Whisk butter until smooth and creamy. (i use hand whisk)
  • Add sugar beat until smooth, then add vanilla essence.
  • Gently, fold in flour mixture until incorporated. (Do not over mix)
  • Flatten the dough to the thickness as desired and freeze for 2 hours.
  • Using any cookies cutter of your preferences and cut.
  • Place it on a baking sheet freeze another 20 minutes.
  • Put into a preheated oven and bake for 15-20 minutes until lightly brown.
  • Cookies must be completely cool to be store in an air-tight container.
Left over dough can be freeze up for weeks, if wrapped properly. Optional you can add chopped nuts to enhance the taste. I prefer thicker cookies. I like this cookies very much as i do like hard cookies and the taste wise is very crunchy and not hard.

Noted: The dough is very sticky, flour the work surface and cookies cutter. Can be spoon drop on baking sheet.
