Chocolate Dipped Heart Shaped Shortbread cookies

Shortbread Chocolate Dipped Hearts

I bake these every year for my sweetheart on Valentine's Day.  This weekend he was reminding me by telling me he had been thinking about them for the last 2 weeks...anticipating how yummy they are!
So today after work I came home and made a batch for him... love you Jeff:)
2 c. flour
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. butter
4-6 T. cold water
1 t. almond extract or vanilla
1 bag milk chocolate chips

In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar, and salt.  Cut in the butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Stir in water and extract until mixture forms a ball.  On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out to a 1/4 " thickness.  Cut with a cookie cutter.  Bake at 350 for 13-15 minutes.  Let cool.

Put the chocolate chips in a bowl.  Microwave 30 seconds.  Stir.  Repeat 2 more times.  Dip 1/2 of each cookie in the chocolate and place on a piece of waxed paper to dry.
