- Preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a large dish, mix softened butter, powdered sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer on medium speed, until it becomes light and fluffy.
- Add salt, all purpose flour and cornstarch and mix some more until well combined.
- Make 1, 5 inch balls and put them in the baking sheet. The balls should be around 2 inches apart.
- Put them in the oven and after 8 minutes take them out and make small dents in the cookies, using solid, round object ( I used ½ tablespoon as a measure), so that they look like nests.
- Be quick and return the cookies in the oven. Bake for 4-6 more minutes.
- Leave them to cool in the baking sheet and then move to a wire rack.
- Meanwhile, melt chocolate with heavy cream and oil. Stir well.
- Pour melted chocolate into each cookie dent, filling around ⅓ tablespoon.
