 Chocolate Shortbread
Everyone who tastes this comments it's a different way to dress up an old-time favorite. You can serve the cookies as appetizers or as a light dessert. We live in the country on an acreage. I enjoy all types of crafts, especially needlework and sewing. And, ever since I was 12, I've also liked cooking!
