To begin making Chocolate Shortbread Cookies I dumped some butter and brown sugar in a large mixing bowl.  I used a wooden spoon to cream them together.

When the butter and brown sugar were getting creamed together I added in some cocoa powder and used the wooden spoon to blend it into the other ingredients.

Then I added in some Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour a cup at a time.  I blended well after each addition.

To finish blending the ingredients I used my hands and formed the dough into a huge log or ball.

Then I divided the dough in half to roll out.

I sprinkled some gluten free flour on some wax paper and started to roll out the dough.

The diameter of the cookie dough log should be about 1 1/2 inches.

I rolled the dough log in wax paper and then rolled out the other half.  When both rolls were ready I set them in the fridge to chill for at least and hour.

After the dough balls were chilled I cut the logs into about 1/4 inch slices.

I placed the slices on a cookie sheet covered with parchment paper.

Next I set a white chocolate chip in the center of each cookie.  You can choose how to decorate or leave them plain.

Then I placed the cookie sheet in a preheated 325F oven for 12-15 minutes or until the cookies were turning darker around the bottom edges.

After removing them from the oven I allowed them to cool on the cookie sheet for about 10 minutes before tranferring them to a cooling rack to finish cooling.

Chocolate Shortbread cookies are a tasty gluten free dessert that will be enjoyed by young and old alike.  

Enjoy this melt in your mouth treat for Christmas or quickly make up a batch any time of the year!
