Chocolate Frosted Shortbread Bites

Oh my!  These Chocolate Frosted Shortbread Bites from Teri look delicious!  And, with only 5 ingredients, they are perfect for a busy mom :)

 Hi! My name is Teri and I am guest blogging here today at Melissa's Cuisine!
 I blog over at The Freshman Cook and  I brought some Chocolate Frosted Shortbread Bites today because when I go visiting, I have to bring a treat! I made little bite sized cookies, and I added some melted milk chocolate to the tops. They have a deep buttery taste, and the little bit of chocolate provided another layer of yummy  flavor! I know you are going to love these simple treats!

Chocolate Topped Shortbread Bites
(adapted from Wilton)
1 cup Butter
3/4 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 1/2 cups Flour
2/3 cup Chocolate Chips-melted
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter, sugar and vanilla together.
Add your flour and mix until dough is smooth.
I used this silicone pan to make my bites. 
Spray the pan with pan spray.
You could also roll out the dough and
 cut the dough into small squares before cooking.
I just eyeballed the size when I made these balls.
I made one, and then pressed it into the mold.
As long as it covers the bottom and is 1/8" thick,
your cookies will be good.
I thought it was great that I was making 
24 cookies at one time!
Cook for 10-15 minutes or until light brown.
Don't over cook. They will get very hard.
Let cool.
Melt your chocolate while your
cookies are baking and cooling.
Pipe a dollop of chocolate on top of each square.
Let the chocolate set up a little.

Thanks for joining me today!
Thank you Melissa for letting me visit!
