How to Make Coconut Shortbread half Dipped in Chocolate

Step-by-Step

  1. COOKIE:
  2. In a bowl, cream butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy.
    Combine flour and baking powder; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in coconut.
  3. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or until firm.
  4. On a floured surface, roll out dough to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with a 2-1/2-in. round cookie cutter.
  5. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.
    Bake at 300° for 20-25 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Cool on wire racks.
  6. FOR DIPPING:
  7. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt chocolate chips and shortening.
    Remove from the heat; dip cookies halfway into chocolate.
    Place on waxed paper-lined baking sheets until set. Yield: about 2 dozen.
  8. NOTE: *If you'd prefer, you can dip (dunk) the whole cookie and cover it all in chocolate.
    If you do you will need to increase the amount of dipping sauce.
    You could also incorporate chocolate chips (or chopped nuts) into the cookie dough, for yet another option.
