1 (12 ounce) package
miniature chocolate chips, divided
Very very good - I made 2 and 2/3 batch (because that's how many chips I had) and used all butter, 1 stick margarine. was nervous as I've not had a lot of luck with shortbread BUT this dough was awesome to work with. We ended up though creating 4 times the number of cookies called for - if we had made it according to the directions the cookie logs would have been way too big. The end result was thumb-sized cookies. Because there were so many more cookies I was worried we didn't have enough of the melted chocolate so instead of dipping, just put the melted chocolate in a bag, snipped the end and drizzled. Much faster, same taste. I'm actually glad we didn't dip - might have been too chocolatey. Also, next time might use just a bit fewer chips in the dough - there are a LOT. But overall, delicious, easy and will probably be one of my Christmas standards from now on.
We followed the recipe exactly EXCEPT we made the cookies much smaller. We ended up with 96 thumb-sized logs that we then drizzled the chocolate over rather than dipping them (since we had so many more to cover, we wouldn't have had enough chocolate to dip them.) The dough was very easy to work with and drizzling the chocolate was so much faster than dipping. WAY YUMMY cookies! I will definitely make these again. although I might try lessening the amount of chocolate chips in the dough as there are a TON of chocolate chips and I love shortbread.
Made for Recipe Group. Loved how easy to make they are. I made all sorts of different shapes. They do spread a bit and had a few that touched when done. I didn't use all the chips in the batter and melted the chocolate and drizzled stripes over with a ziploc. Look very nice and will go on the holiday cookie tray!
Delicious shortbread cookie recipe with standard measurements being used for the butter, flour and sugar. After measuring the chocolate chips and based on other reviews I knew it would have been too much for my taste so I cut the chocolate chips back to 1 cup and ran them through the food processor briefly to chop them finer. Instead of making logs I pressed the dough out to about 1/2 - 3/4" thickness on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and baked till the edges started turning golden (about 20 minutes) since I was not making logs. I let the cookie slab cool, broke it apart and drizzled the pieces with chocolate. Good recipe patticake, one I will make again (recipe made for *RECIPE GROUP*).
Made these for Recipe Group...DELICIOUS! I made 1/2 batch (just to try), and got 22 cookies. These were so simple, it's hard to believe that they turned out this good. Instead of dipping the, I drizzled them w/ the chocolate for a prettier appearance. These are definitely going on the Christmas cookie baking list~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
This is a very tasty shortbread cookie that could not have been any easier to make. I followed the recipe except to make the cookies about half the size indicated. I yielded about 48 cookies and the beauty of this recipe is you can put them all on one cookie sheet and bake them all at once, since they dont rise. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe, patticake. We absolutely love them!
Crunchy, buttery and loaded with chocolate goodness - what else is there to say besides DELICIOUS? I used my small cookie scoop (1 Tablespoon) to form balls and then just made into logs. I dipped the shortbread cookie into the melted chocolate chips and used a toothpick to make little downward, pointed designs. Just found a new recipe that will be a perfect addition to any cookie tray! Made for the Buzz Recipe Group and I thank you patticake for sharing your 5 star recipe.
