- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 1/4 cups powdered sugar, divided
- 3 tablets (90 g each) NESTLÉ ABUELITA Chocolate, grated
- 2 cups vegetable shortening
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
PREHEAT oven to 350° F.
MIX flour, 2 cups powdered sugar and Abuelita in medium bowl. Place shortening in large mixer bowl; beat at medium speed, adding flour mixture gradually until combined. Add vanilla extract; beat until combined. Freeze for 7 to 10 minutes.
SHAPE 1 tablespoon dough into ball; repeat with remaining dough. Place balls 1-inch apart on ungreased baking sheets and press lightly to flatten.
BAKE for 16 to 18 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for 1 minute; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Dust with remaining 1/4 cup powdered sugar.
Review This Recipe
Monique, butter has more water than shortening, so cookies made with butter tend to spread more. Refrigerating the dough before baking might help.
