Peppermint Shortbread...pinned it and tried it

Pinned it, tried it and loved it!

I love these festive shortbread cookies. They are buttery delicious on their own, even better dipped in chocolate.

AND even better dipped in chocolate AND then rolled in crushed candy canes!

 Here are a few I dipped in chocolate and sprinkles.....

The recipe makes quite a few, and they freeze very well. I also like that they are a b ite size cookie, perfect for a small sweet after a big meal. Next year I will dip some in white chocolate,too!
