Holiday Recipe Inspiration: Toblerone Shortbread

Happy Sunday!
I have a feeling this week might be heavy on the recipes 😉 All weekend I’ve been baking and compiling recipes and ingredients for next weekend’s festivities. To start the baking/cooking marathon, I began with one of my absolutely favorite holiday indulgences: shortbread! Aside from the decadently buttery texture and the melt in your mouth experience, these holiday treats are also studded with rich chunks of Toblerone—heavenly! These cookies are perfect for the holidays, since you can make them in advance and package them in air tight containers for up to 10 days and they are really easy to make {bonus!}.
1 Cup of Butter {At Room Temperature} * 1/2 Cup Sugar * 1 3/4 Cups Flour * 1/4 Tsp Salt * 1/4 Cup Cornstarch * 1 bar (100 g) Toblerone Swiss Milk Chocolate {Chopped} * Icing Sugar {Sifted}
Heat oven to 350°F. Beat butter and sugar with mixer {use paddle attachment} in large bowl until light and fluffy. Mix flour and cornstarch and gradually add to butter mixture until well incorporated. Stir in chunks of chocolate.
Drop tablespoon rounds of dough, 1 inch apart, onto a baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 mins or until lightly browned. Cool first and then transfer to wire racks until completely cooled. Sift icing sugar over top!
P&C TIP: These dainty and buttery treats need to be packaged beautifully, if you are giving them away. Line a holiday take out box or holiday themed cookie box with parchment paper and tie a beautiful ribbon, as the final touch.
