These are the most addictive cookies. I have made them several times now. I like my shortbread to be on the softer side so instead of making them flat, I used a small ice cream scoop and left them in that shape. Not only do they stay in the cute shape of a scoop of ice cream, they a soft and slightly chewy. (see my photo) You do have to cook them slighty longer to get them to brown a little. The first time I made these I used bar chocolate and chopped it into pieces. This last time I used white chocolate chips and it was much easier and less of a mess. I will make these again and again.
This is a great, easy recipe. It is 5 stars as is but try it with a 12 ounce bag of white chocolate chips and a 6 ounce bag of tart cherries. The white chocolate chips are easier and the whole bag is a plus. The tart cherries have a better texture and flavor in my opinion than the cranberries.
Wow! Soooo yummy! I did bake them for about 20 min for them to brown a little more, very good! Definitely will be making them again and will be trying different mix-in's. Super simple recipe. I think you could even make these without the choco & cranberries just for a shortbread. Will have to try that! Happy baking everyone!
