      These were wonderful--made them for my cookie boxes this year. I decorated them with the white icing in the recipe and some green and red sprinkles and they were so cute! They were rather soft-a nice texture for a cutout cookie--and the cinnamon/cocoa combination was really, really nice. Excellent! I'm sure I'll make them next year, too. thanks!

      NOT really shortbread, but good! The kids I baked them for said they were "yummy!"

      i just made them. The dough turned out perfectly. I added the extra 1/4 cup flour like the one rating suggested. Glad you added this recipe!

      I hate to bring the rating down on these because they really were delicious. However, I had quite a hard time working with the dough even though I kept it refrigerated. No amount of flour could keep it from sticking to either the rolling pin or the working surface. :( Cutting out was a disaster as well so I ended up making little balls and flattening them with a fork. Will definately be trying my hand at these again.

      This is probably one of the best chocolate shortbreads I've come across. I'm pretty picky on the process of putting the dough together because I make a lot of shortbread and know what constistancy the dough should be when I pull it off that mixer. I creamed the butter and then added the suger beating that combination until fluffy.Add vanilla. I mixed the flour, chocolate (I used the Hersheys Special Dark or use European Style Dutched if you are a chocolate junky),cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Slowly add to the butter mixture. You know the dough is the right texture when it pulls away from the sides and clumps together. With this recipe, I had to add an extra 1/4 cup flour to achieve this. Chill dough until it is workable without a sticky mess, cut out and bake. Thank you Ashley for your contribution, your cookie recipe brightened my holiday!

      These are the cutest cookies, wonderful addition to the cookie trays for xmas. The only thing I did differently was add the vanilla to the butter and powdered sugar instead of to the dry ingriedents. I also was able to get red & green candy melts and used those to drizzle on top. I did chill the dough for about an hour as it is a soft dough and I'm not good at cutout cookies so it was easier for me to work with.

      I made these with a teddy bear cookie cutter for my son's kindergarten teddy bear picnic. They were wonderful. I overcooked the icing (my fault) and opted for a basic confectioners sugar glaze instead. Turned out great. The kids ate them up! Will definitely make these again.
