Sometimes I feel the urge to have shortbread. I saw this recipe and thought that I would give it a try. They were pretty good, with a light chocolate taste.

I like chocolate, but these cookies are kinda bland.

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.
