These shortbread cookies are awesome! I didn't have enough butter so I used 1/2 c butter and 1/2 c margarine, I think they turned out fine. I'm not a huge chocolate person, I think next time I will use dried cherries in place of the M&M's, and maybe almond extract instead of vanilla. This recipe is a definite keeper, thanks for posting it!

I got this recipe from the newspaper a few years ago and have made it many times since. It is a fabulous shortbread cookie everyone raves about. I've tried it in a jellyroll pan, but they turn out a bit too rich because you have to cut them large or they crumble. As drop cookies though they are wonderful!
