Found this in a dessert recipe cookbook I have. For the Super Bowl, I cut them in football shapes and decorated with white icing to look like little footballs.
1 cup butter (2 sticks), softened
1 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
2 tablespoons cocoa
Cream butter and sugar till fluffy. Add vanilla. Add flour and cocoa; mix till all combined.
Roll out between 2 sheets of waxed paper to 1/4″ thickness and refrigerate 30 minutes. Cut out shapes and put on nonstick cookie sheet (or use cooking parchment paper), then refrigerate another 15 minutes so the shapes hold.
Bake at 350 for 12 minutes, turning the cookie sheet around when halfway done.
If you like, you can leave out the cocoa to make plain shortbread.
