Chocolate Chunk Shortbread

Recipe by MMers
READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
YIELD: 72 cookies


  • 2 12
  • 2
    cups butter, softened
  • 1
    cup fruit sugar (instant dissolving)
  • 1
    cup rice flour
  • 8
    semi-sweet chocolate baking squares, chopped


  • Place 1 1/2 cups of the all purpose flour in a 12-inch frying pan and cook (yes, cook!) over medium heat, stirring constantly, until flour is medium brown in color (about 8 minutes).
  • Let cool.
  • In bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Sift together rice flour, cooked all purpose flour and remaining all purpose flour.
  • Stir until well blended.
  • Stir in chocolate chunks (I've also used mini semi-sweet chocolate chips and the cookies taste just as good).
  • Refrigerate until dough is stiff enough to handle (about 1 hour).
  • Roll into 1 1/4" balls and place on parchment-lined baking sheets about 2" apart.
  • Bake in preheated 275 degree oven for about 50 minutes or until slightly golden on the bottom.
  • Let cool 10 minutes before removing from baking sheet.
