Recipe by Karen..

Shortbread is a comfort food to me, because it was one of the cookies my mom made the most. This recipe adds another comfort food...chocolate! These are incredibly delicious and rich and make a lovely presentation.

Ohhhhhhhh gawshhhh these are addictive! Between mom, grandmom and I we gobbled down half the batch! The instructions for this recipe are perfect, and I didn't change a thing. I used salted butter because that's all I had on hand, but I figured that was okay, and didn't omit the salt. These shortbreads turned out buttery, crumbly, delicately gooey near the chips, and simply out of this world! Thanks Karen... this was some experience! :-)
