Chocolate Chunk Shortbread

    Awesome cookie that melts in your mouth. I have made with just chocolate and also finely chopped dark chocolate almonds. Any chocolate bar would probably great as well.

    I just made this recipe. I did a test sheet the cookies spread and were like lace. I chilled the dough for 2 hours baked as directed the cookies still spread.
