It’s the week before Valentine’s Day… In my family this is a full-on week of baking.

Since our primary love language is food, we make all kinds of little goodies to give out to friends and take to school Valentine’s parties.

Can you guess what our star ingredient will be?

It’s indisputably chocolate.

You simply can’t have Valentine’s Day without chocolate, or at least I can’t!

My favorite treats to bake are cookies, i.e. perfectly portioned little love offerings.

In my opinion, there is one cookie variety that tops them all. Shortbread.

Buttery shortbread cookies are rich and light, flaky and dense. Yin and yang in dessert form.

A tasty contradiction.

I make many varieties of shortbread: cranberry orange, rosemary, lemongrassshortbread thumb prints, cinnamon shortbread sandwich cookies…

Yet for Valentine’s Day my favorite is Chocolate Dipped Salty Shortbread.

I think we can all agree, chocolate and salt belong together. In Valentine terms, they are “MTB,” Meant To Be.

Salt brings out the brightest flavor of everything it’s added to. So why would we leave it out of dessert?

These Chocolate Dipped Salty Shortbread Cookies are easy to make, yet hard to resist.

The dough can be made up to two weeks ahead and kept in the refrigerator, for rolling and baking at a moment’s notice. Then sprinkle with a little extra sea salt on top, and dip in chocolate!

I like my Chocolate Dipped Salty Shortbread with semisweet chocolate. However, you can dip these cookies in milk chocolate, dark chocolate, really any variety of chocolate you like best.
