Twelve Days of Christmas Cookies (Day Two)

I had a Bunco Party/Cookie Exchange last week and I wanted to try something that I typically wouldn't make.  I got this recipe on Pinterest (have I mentioned how much I LOVE Pinterest?!!).  The actual photo on Pinterest looked quite different and way prettier than mine ended up turning out, but I have to say I thought they were delicious!  I've never made a shortbread cookie before, so I wasn't used to the dry texture of the dough.  I also misread the amount of shortening I was supposed to add to the white chocolate coating.  Rather than adding two teaspoons, I added two tablespoons, so the consistency of my white chocolate wasn't as thick as it should've been.  Once I realized my mistake I wasn't about to waste all that good white chocolate and start over, so I just went with what I already had.  Bottom line is Luke, my little guy, absolutely loved them and I enjoyed the flavor as well.  I think that these are a re-do and I would recommend for anyone to try them!  If you'd like to try this recipe click on the name of the cookie and it will take you to the Better Homes and Garden Website.
