VCE: Brownie Bites and Shortbread

Found these goodies over at RubyGlen... There are lots of good recipes, and lots of tips and gift ideas there worth checking out.

Brownie Bites

1/3 c brown sugar
1/4 c butter
3 oz semi-sweet chocolate
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1 egg - lightly beaten
1/3 c flour
24 chocolate rosebuds

Over low heat melt sugar, butter, and chocolate. Stir until chocolate is just melted. Remove from heat and let cool for 1 minute. Blend in vanilla & egg. Fold in flour until just blended. Spoon into tiny baking cups. Bake at 350F for 10 - 12 minutes or until set. Remove from oven; set rosebud on top of each. Let cool.

Makes 2 dozen. Can freeze.

My Mom's Shortbread

1 cup soft butter
1/2 cup sugar
2 1/2 cups sifted flour

Thoroughly mix butter and sugar. Stir in sifted flour (set 1/2 cup aside & add if needed). Mix thoroughly with hands. Roll into two logs. Wrap in wax paper and chill for 2 hours. Preheat oven to 300F. Cut into slices and place on cookie sheets. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 20 - 25 minutes. Yields 2 dozen.

Or roll out and cut with cookie cutters, place on cookie sheets, cover and chill for 2 hours. You can decorate your cookies with sprinkles, chocolate chips, raisins or smarties before chilling. Bake as above.
