Salted Chocolate Shortbread Cookies

One of my favorite ways to make cookies is in the food processor.  It is crazy quick and super easy.  I was craving cookies bad but didn’t have any eggs of chocolate chips and these little beauties came to the rescue!


Notes:  The dough will be fairly dry, do not be alarmed! The butter should be cool, I would suggest about an hour outside of the fridge.

1 1/4 cup flour

1/3 cup cocoa powder

2/3 cup brown sugar

1/4 sugar

11 TBLS. butter (in about 11 pieces)

1/2 tsp. baking soda

Pulse all ingredients until a dough starts to come together.

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 tsp. sea salt

Add in and allow the food processor to go until the dough fully comes together.

Form the dough into a log (about 2.5 inches in diameter) and wrap in plastic, chill for at least an hour.

Oven to 325*

Slice the cookie dough 1/2 inch thick and sprinkle with sea salt.

Bake for 13 minutes, until edges firm up.
