Ingredients
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • For glaze:
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 Tbsp. Irish whiskey
  • splash of heavy cream
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine butter and sugar until smooth. Add in vanilla and salt and mix until combined.
  3. Add in flour and mix on low until just incorporated. Turn the mixture onto a flour-dusted surface. Knead gently until the dough comes together.
  4. Using a rolling pin, roll the dough to 1/4 inch thick. Use a cookie cutter (shape is your choice) and cut out shapes, laying the cut out cookies on the baking sheets. Repeat until you have no more dough.
  5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes until lightly golden. Remove to a cooling rack.
  6. Once completely cool, prepare the glaze. Heat the chocolate chips in the microwave in 30 second increments until melted completely.
  7. Stir in whiskey and a splash of heavy cream until smooth. Dip the cookies into the glaze then lay flat on parchment until hardened.
