Light, buttery and soft, shortbreads are quintessential holiday cookies made with just a few key ingredients: butter, flour, sugar and vanilla extract. Ina takes her crumbly creations to the next level of decadence by dipping each cooled cutout into smooth melted chocolate. Dunk these beauties in a cup of coffee or serve them with a tall glass of cold milk for a simple dessert or sweet midday treat.
