Chocolate Dipped Rose Shortbread Cookies

You will need…

3/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperate
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
4 tsp rose water
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
200g (2 bars) good quality dark chocolate, finely chopped
heart-shaped cookie cutter

Directions…

Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a stand mixer, or electric mixer, cream the butter, sugar, and salt until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and rose water.

Finally, on low speed, add the flour until all ingredients are well incorporated.

Place the dough in plastic wrap, and chill in the fridge for about an hour.

Roll the dough onto a floured surface to about 1/2″ thick. Using the heart shaped cookie cutter, cut out heart shapes and place onto the baking sheet. Bake for 25-30mins until just golden on top. Set aside to cool.

Place a sheet of parchment paper on a cooling wrack or the counter top. In a double-boiler, melt the chocolate until smooth. Remove from heat. Dip the side of each heart-shaped cookie into the chocolate and place onto parchment paper to cool.

Makes about 24 cookies.

This year, Valentine’s Day marks the last day of Mercedes Benz fashion week in New York. What a perfect way to celebrate the new Fall/Winter trends of 2013 with my rose shortbread cookies… not that I’m biased. The looks on the runway for FW 2013 featured indulgent materials of fur, leather, and beaded embellishments. So here’s to more indulgence, and my favourite shows of the season…
Its a tie…
