Did you have a good Christmas? I did. By strategic planning and a little bit of luck, I’ve had the last 8 days off of work and I still have 2 more days off. Lots of time spent hanging out with the fam and today, a lot of time with my couch.
I don’t usually like shortbread cookies, but I love chocolate so when I saw these in my Facebook feed, I wanted to give them a try. It is a quick recipe and the chocolate flavor is really rich, which I like. They rolled out beautifully and the dough was easy to work with, which is always a bonus for me. I hate dealing with sticky/messy dough. I made these cookies with a friend before Christmas, so we used holiday shapes, but you can cut them into whatever shapes you want. We cheated and used cream cheese frosting from a can for decorating.
