Reviews for Chocolate Shortbread
"I followed this recipe to the letter, & it was awful. They were bitter, tasteless. All I ended up making was fish food for the fish in my pond. Very disappointed. No stars ........ :("
"My cookies looked exactly like the picture, but they crumbled very easily. Also, they had very little chocolate flavor, and I got maybe 2.5 dozen cookies out of this recipe."
"Just what I was looking for. Headed straight for the kitchen. Yummmmmm"
