How do I make Marbled Shortbread cookies?

The steps for these marbled cookies are the same at the marbled oreos.

I decided to use pink and purple food coloring for these cookies and then wanted to a mix of both colors.  So, I prepared and melted three small glass bowls with white chocolate melts in each.

Next, add in a few drips of your food coloring.  I think I did just two or three drips.  Using a toothpick, give the coloring a very light swirl.  If you mix the coloring too much, it will loose the marbled look.

Drip your cookie in the chocolate and pull out.  You can either dip just a corner or an entire side.  I went for the biggest impact, so I dipped most the cookie into the chocolate.

And lastly, using a sheet of wax paper, set your cookies aside to allow the chocolate to harden.

I have purple, pinks and then the mix each in a line.  You can see that I slightly over mixed the purple, as it’s a bit more cloudy of a marbled look.
