My New Favorite Recipe

I'm not doing a ton of Christmas baking this year.  Which is kind of sad, because I love Christmas baking!  But it's just not practical to fill my kitchen with tons of goodies and sweets when there are only two of us who really eat sugar, and I don't want to totally overload our systems. :P
However, I did make these cookies the other day, and have completely fallen in love with a new twist on an old family recipe.

Chocolate dipped shortbread = hello, yumminess! :)

The original recipe: (stolen, very recently from my sister's blog.)

Melting Moments Shortbread

1/2 c cornstarch            1 c. flour
1/2 c icing sugar           3/4 c butter
Mix together, form into balls, flatten if desired.  Bake at 350 for 10 minute or until just golden brown.  

The Twist:
Melt about 1 1/2 cups of chocolate (I used Bernard Callebaut dark chocolate chunks) along with about 1/3 cup of milk.  Stir until smooth.  Dip cooled shortbread cookies into the chocolate and place on wax paper.  Let cool in the fridge until the chocolate is hardened.  

Warning: These are very addictive, proceed with caution. :P
