Short bread with Ganache and sea salt

SHORT BREAD: 2 cups flour, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1 cup butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1 tsp. vanilla

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. In one bowl whisk together flour and salt. In another bowl beat together butter, powdered sugar and vanilla. Fold flour mixture in gently. Roll dough out to about 1/4 an inch thick. Place in refrigerator for about 30 minutes. Cut out shapes. Place on cookie sheet and bake in oven for about 7 minutes or until golden. 

GANACHE: In large sauce pan melt half bag of semi sweet chocolate chip cookies. Add 2 tbs butter and 3/4 tsp corn syrup. Stirg until smooth. Drizzle or dip your cookies and then sprinkle with sea salt. 

I had a lot of fun making these cookies with Henry before the holidays and giving them to our neighbors. He loved it, way more than I thought he could or would. He now loves making cookies with me. It is one of our new favorite things to do. This weekend we had the flu so we are still taking it easy today. Hope everyone has a great week planned!

I LOVE this cookie cutter set! I used the moose for the cinnamon ornaments I made this year. Now I want to make shortbread hedgehogs! Feel better! I'm just getting over a doozie of a cold myself. Being sick=no fun. XOXO

I'm with Natalie--this cookie cutter set is the best. Although my moose and foxes always want to break. What a fun activity. I think that kids enjoy cooking so much in part because it's a "grown up" thing to do. Hope your home is feeling better and flu free.

This is my favorite cookie in the world (and I haven't even made it yet, but I can tell it's PERFECT)!
