In my opinion, there is one cookie variety that tops them all. Shortbread. Buttery shortbread cookies are rich and light, flaky and dense. Yin and yang in dessert form.
A tasty contradiction. And then, there is salt. Salt brings out the brightest flavor of everything it’s added to. So why would we leave it out of dessert?
These Chocolate Dipped Salty Shortbread Cookies are easy to make, yet hard to resist.
The dough can be made up to two weeks ahead and kept in the refrigerator, for rolling and baking at a moment’s notice. Then sprinkle with a little extra sea salt on top, and dip in chocolate!
