Melt-In-Your-Mouth Mini Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

No subs use only butter. If desired you can coat them is sugar before baking. These are also great without the chocolate chips, chopped maraschino cherries can be used in place of the chocolate chips for the holidays.

I had this recipe and lost it. I am so glad I found it it's my children's favorite Christmas cookie.
