Scrumptious Shortbread

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C).
  2. Using electric mixer beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. In separate bowl, combine salt, flour, chocolate, baking soda and orange zest; using wooden spoon, gradually stir into butter mixture until well combined.
  3. Divide dough in thirds; pat each into 6" (15 cm) circle onto parchment paper-lined cookie sheets. Using paring knife, without cutting all the way through dough, score each circle into 8 wedges.
  4. Bake in centre of oven for 15 to 20 minute or until lightly golden. Cool on pan on racks for 5 minutes. Cut through score marks. Drizzle cooled cookies with melted chocolate.
