White Chocolate-Lemon Shortbread

White Chocolate-Lemon Shortbread from www.missinthekitchen.com

Over the holidays I made several batches of lemon shortbread.  It all disappeared in no time flat, it’s just so addictive.  Last week I had to have more lemon shortbread but this time I added in some Green & Black’s White Chocolate.  I didn’t think it was possible but the lemon shortbread became even more addictive!

Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner I used the heart shaped cookie cutter and really hearts are always just right for sweet treats.

 White Chocolate-Lemon Shortbread


for shortbread:

for glaze:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon zest

Cooking Directions:

Preheat oven to 300°F.

Add sugar to a large mixer bowl.  Add lemon zest and using your fingers, rub lemon zest into sugar until it is well distributed.  Add flour and white chocolate and mix together on low speed with electric mixer about 30 seconds.  Add butter and mix at low speed until all combined.  Turn mixer up to medium and mix until dough comes together.

Pour onto a lightly floured surface and knead together into a disc shape.  Roll dough with a rolling pin to about 1/2 inch thickness. Use a cookie or biscuit cutter to cut into desired shapes.  Place on a lined baking sheet.

Bake for 20-22 minutes or until very lightly browned.

Remove to a wire rack to cool.

In a small bowl add powdered sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest.  Whisk together until smooth.  Spread glaze over cookies when they are cool.  Return to wire rack for glaze to set up.
