These cookies were fantastic! They remind me of the wonderful shortbread that I get in Maui, and they are sooooo easy to make. I did not have a cookie press, so I rolled the dough into walnut sized balls, and flattened them with my thumb. I also quartered the recipe, since I only had one stick of butter. It worked perfect, especially with the addition of mini chocolate chips:) If you make these with margarine (I used Smart Balance in a test batch), the texture stays the same, but the cookies take on a margarine flavour. It really is best to use butter for these cookies for taste purposes. If you do not mind the margarine flavour, less cholesterol, healthier fats, and some omega in your cookies, then you can use Smart Balance. Either way, I love these cookies. Next time, I will try mini chocolate chips, in addition to dipping them in chocolate. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, Sally :)
