Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies



Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

300g (10oz) plain flour
100g ( 4oz) caster sugar
200g (8oz) butter
100g chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
caster (superfine) sugar for dredging

1. Sift the flour into a bowl and add the sugar. Work in the butter with your fingertips - keep it in one piece and gradually work in the dry ingredients. Knead well adding in the chocolate chips or chopped chocolate once the dough has come together.
2. Pat down on a work surface and use a rolling pin to roll the dough to about 1/2 cm (1/8 in) and cut out with a cookie cutter. You will probably have to keep pushing the dough back together again as it is very crumbly.
3. Slide the cut biscuits off the work surface with a knife and onto a baking sheet.
4. Bake in the oven at 170C (325F) Mark 3 for about 8 minutes until firm and pale golden brown.
5. Lift onto a cooling tray with a spatula and dredge with caster (superfine) sugar.

  Butter, sugar, flour, chocolate, what more do I need to say?  Delicious! 

I am entering these cookies for We Should Cocoa, the blog challenge run by Choclette of Chocolate Log Blog and this month hosted by Rebecca at BakeNQuilt.

How lovely Janice. Shortbread is my favourite biscuit. Strangely, I've not yet tried my hand at choc chip ones. Something else to be remedied. Thanks for entering them into We Should Cocoa.

These look really easy to make, and I love chocolate shortbread. Definitely something I'll be attempting with the kids, thank you.
