This is a really wonderful and tasty recipe, with the chocolate and coffee being a nice sharp flavor contrast to the rich buttery dough. I did not have a lot of luck shaping these elegantly, so I pressed most of the dough into a 9x13 pan, baked it, then sprinkled chocolate chunks over the top and put it back in the oven for just a minute or two. When the chocolate started to glisten, I spread it over the top, then cut the chocolate-topped shortbread into squares. Really a delcious recipe, thank you.

I have made these for years now and it's true everyone loves them and requests them over and over. My frustration is that I just can't get a nice bean shape that holds. This year I may try as Moxie suggests and bake them in a 9x13 pan melting chocolate on top.
