Chocolate Dipped Goodness

As I told you last year, with my somewhat silly take on the Lydia Maria Child classic, I go to my sister’s house for Thanksgiving dinner. (I host the family for Christmas, so it works out nicely)  I have some dishes that I make every year to bring to her house, which I’ve just completed at the time of this blog post, and you can see pictures of in my link up there to last year’s post if you are interested.  This year I’ve made a tasty addition.  While flipping through my current issue of Fine Cooking magazine, I was inspired by this recipe.  There were several variations suggested for this simple cookie.  My choice?  Chocolate-dipped chocoalate chip shortbread cookies.

It is a pretty simple recipe, and it would be easy to customize to your liking.  When you make the dough, you just press it into a pan, slice ’em up (before baking) and perforate:

After they cooled, I melted the extra chocolate chips and dipped:

Look delicious, don’t they?

Whatever you will be eating tomorrow, have a wonderful Thanksgiving day!


  1. Looks pretty tasty. What time should I be there tomorrow? 🙂

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. 🙂

  3. YUM!!! I don’t think they would make it to MY sister’s house, because I’d eat them in the car on the way over 😉
