Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies


Chocolate Chip Shortbread

Recipe developed by The Beet Drop – Diane Garvey

Makes 15, 2” x 4” cookies


  • 1 cup softened plant-based butter
  • ⅔ cup powdered sugar 
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract 
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 


Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies




  1. Cream butter, sugar, and vanilla together until smooth. 
  2. Mix in flour. 
  3. Mix in chocolate chips by hand. 
  4. Put dough on parchment paper, and shape into a rectangle that is 2” tall and 4” wide.  Wrap in parchment paper and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours. 
  5. Preheat oven to 325° f. 
  6. Remove chilled dough from the refrigerator and unwrap. Slice dough into ¼ – ½” thick  slices. Place sliced cookies onto a parchment lined baking sheet about 2” apart.  7. Bake for 18-22 min. Shortbread should be barely golden on the edges. Let cool on pan  for 10 minutes. Finish cooling on cooling rack.


Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies


  • For an almond flavor swap out half of the vanilla extract for almond extract. 2. For circular shortbread cookies, shape the dough into a log before chilling. 3. Store in airtight container for up to a week.  
  • These cookies freeze well. Just be sure to wrap well before freezing to avoid freezer  burn. 
  • Add some flare to your cookies with a chocolate drizzle. Simply place ¼ cup chocolate  chips in a small cup or bowl and microwave in 15-second increments, stirring well  between each increment. Stop microwaving once most of the chips are melted. Get the  rest to melt by stirring. Use a fork or spoon to drizzle shortbread with chocolate. I like to  do this on my cooling rack, with parchment paper underneath for easy cleanup.
