    I thought the recipe was missing something. After making 1 inch balls, you can't flatten them. They are definitely missing something!!! Help.

    I love shortbread and I love chocolate - this recipe combines both deliciously!

    Rose is right - this is a shortbread cookie. No leavener necessary.

    This cookie does not require baking soda or baking powder. Ive made these cookies 5 times already and they come out perfect every time...they are a butter cookie...NOT a tollhouse. Delish!!!!! My families new favorite cookie!!!!

    I also keep checking the menu. I finally realized that it's missing baking soda, so I added 1 tsp.

    This cookie is not good. I kept checking the recipe to see if there had been a mistake.
