For the lightest, fluffy texture and loft, use potato starch in the recipe. If you do not have any on hand, or don’t want to get another ingredient, simply leave it out. It will still have airy texture, but the body won’t be as lofty. If you prefer a more mounded cookie and enhanced chew, replace the potato starch with almond flour. It also adds a nice hint of almond flavor.   
Dipping in Chocolate
In a microwave safe bowl melt 1 cup of semi-sweet or dark chocolate chips for approximately 45 seconds, stopping to stir every 15 seconds. Line a baking sheet with wax paper to transfer the dipped cookies to. Dip the bottom of the cooled cookie into the chocolate. Use a fork to gently lift it out of the bowl, scrapping off excess chocolate on the side of the bowl. Transfer to the prepared baking sheet and let sit at room temperature until hardened, about 1-2 hours. A quicker way to add chocolate flavor would be drizzling it over the top of the cookies. Arrange them on a wax-paper lined baking sheet, close together. Use a fork or small spoon to drizzle the chocolate over the tops. If desired, immediately dust with festive sprinkles. If you find the chocolate to be too thick for dipping or drizzling, add a small dash of oil, such as canola, vegetable, or melted coconut oil. Stir and try again. The chocolate will also thicken as it sits, so it may have to be reheated.
