  • 1¼ cups/300 mL firmly-packed brown sugar
  • ¼ tsp/1.2 mL freshly-ground Watkins Sea Salt
  • 1/2 tsp/2.5 mL baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tsp/10 mL Watkins Extract of choice*

    Try any combination you can think of! Also, sprinkle with chopped nuts, coconut, etc. while chocolate is still soft.

    Cream the butter and shortening together until fluffy. Add the brown sugar, salt and soda and beat well. Beat in the egg and extracts. Add flour and beat on low until blended. Divide into fourths. Shape each fourth into an 8-inch log. Wrap in waxed paper and chill for at least 1 hour. Slice into 1/4 to 1/2-inch/6 to 12-mm slices. Place on ungreased baking sheet and bake at 375°F/190°C for 10 minutes or until very light brown. Cool on wire rack.

    Melt chocolate in microwave in a small bowl. Dip one end of shortbread into the melted chocolate and let cool until set.

    Yield: 12-14 dozen bite-sized cookies.
