TWD: Chocolate Espresso Shortbread





This week, Donna of Life’s Too Short Not to Eat Dessert First picked Espresso Chocolate Shortbread Cookies on page 125. I have been so busy that I almost forgot to post today, but better late than never.

In my world, Shortbread = Holidays. I use the word holidays loosely to include the time from Oct - Christmas, the season that revolves around food the most, in my opinion :)

I used 1/3 cocoa in place of 1/3 cup flour as I wanted these to be very chocolatey. They also reminded me less of Christmas this way.

Using chocolate, espresso and shortbread together in one sentence makes me happy. It's fabulous that they are all in one sweet treat. Thanks for sharing.

Did you cut them into rounds or did you roll them into logs and then slice? They look adorable. I especially like the nutty addition in the center. Thanks for baking with me this week.
