Build Season Recipes: Week 4

Our robot this year is looking like it will be very short — much like these shortbread cookies we snacked on while assembling the drivetrain and manufacturing parts for the intake.

Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

  • 1 cup butter, at room temperature

  • 2/3 cup icing sugar

  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 2 cups flour

  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

Beat butter, icing sugar and vanilla until very smooth. Slowly add flour, mixing only until it disappears into the dough. Stir in chocolate chips by hand. Roll out dough between two sheets of parchment paper into a 1/4" thick rectangle. Refrigerate until solidified (about 2 hours). Cut dough into 1 1/2" squares and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 325°F for 18-20 minutes until golden brown around the edges.
