Here’s what you’ll need to make these whimsical, irresistible cookies.
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
2 cups all-purpose flour
Gel Food Coloring (pink, orange, yellow, green, purple)
1 ½ cups white chocolate chips
Follow these steps for perfect rainbow-dipped shortbread cookies:
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a Good Cook Air Perfect baking sheet with parchment paper.
Step 2: In a stand mixer, cream together butter and sugar. Add flour and continue to mix until mixture forms a soft dough (it will be crumbly at first, but keep mixing and it will form a dough).
Step 3: Separate dough into 5 equal pieces. Tint each portion a different color with gel food coloring.
Step 4: Stack colored doughs on top of each other. Roll until 1/4-inch thick on a surface dusted with flour or powdered sugar with a well-dusted rolling pin.
Step 5: Once the dough is flat, take one end and roll into a log that’s 2 ½ inches in diameter. Slice into individual cookies, about ¼ inch thick, and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 16-18 minutes, or until cookies are pale golden brown. Allow to cool completely.
Step 6: Place white chocolate chips in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave in 30 seconds bursts, stirring between, until melted and smooth.
Step 7: Spoon 1 tablespoon of melted chocolate into a Sweet Creations Candy and Cookie Mold, up to the easy-fill line marked on the mold.
Step 8: Working quickly, press a cooled cookie into the mold. Repeat until all cookies have been coated in chocolate. Place mold in a cool, dry place or in the refrigerator until chocolate is hardened, about 1 hour.
Step 9: Remove from the mold and enjoy!
