"Perfect little shortbread cookies. Dip them in chocolate and top with nuts, coconut, and crushed candy canes. Not too sweet and a great Christmas cookie! Freezes well and dough can be made a day or two ahead. These are good plain, or you can melt some chocolate chips (milk, semi-sweet, or white) and dip one end of the cookie. You can then dip the chocolate end in chopped nuts, crushed candy canes, coconut, jimmies, or decorating sugar. Or, add a little grated orange peel or chopped candied ginger to the chocolate when you melt it for another great flavor. Place on waxed paper to harden." — EMMYJAY1

What a fabulous recipe! Not only are these cookies delicious, they present very well. My taste testers loved them! They are sure to be a hit on Christmas Eve.....thanks so much!
Followed the recipe just as instructed. These cookies taste great and are incredibly easy to make. It made about 65 cookies(plus whatever my 3 year old ate as I was placing the balls of dough on the sheet). We added dried cranberries because they had been in the pantry for a while and 1/2 cup m&m's that were left from Easter. They seem like they would taste great with crushed nuts too.
Perfect shortbread cookie, taste like store bought but wayyyyy better. Super easy. Dipping them in chocolate is the perfect finishing touch!
Very good cookies. They have a nice texture and not too sweet, just right. I dipped each cookie halfway in melted chocolate and sprinkled on finely chopped walnuts. Delicious and pretty!
Delicious and easy to make. I put some pecans halves on them. Everybody loved them.
