Chocolate Shortbread Recipe

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!

"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."
