Shortbread Cookies... Only Better!

Since everything is better with chocolate!

This recipe is also good to do before a manicure. The margarine and shortening makes hands super soft!

3/4 cup sugar
Softened both of:
1/2 cup Earth Balance Buttery Stick
1/2 cup Earth Balance Shortening Stick
2-1/4 cups gluten free baking mix
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of sea salt
Sugar for shaping

Heat oven to 325. In mixer beat the Earth Balance Sticks with sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in baking mix, baking powder and salt. Dough will seem dry but as you pull pieces to roll into 1/2" balls it comes together. Place on parchment lined cookie sheet 1" apart.

Flatten the balls slightly with sugar coated bottom of a glass. Bake for 8-10 minutes. They puff slightly. Allow to cool on cookie sheet. Melt in your mouth goodness!

Try not to stack when storing.
