Espresso Chocolate Shortbread Cookies

The recipe for TWD this week is chosen by Donna of Life’s Too Short Not to Eat Dessert First. I must have been half asleep when I baked these cookies last night, or I was too distracted by the comedy shown on TV. Instead of rolling the dough flat and let it rest in the fridge, I misinterpreted the recipe and shaped it into a log. I only realised my mistake when the cookies were baking in the oven. Anyway, the shortbread is crisp and has a melt-in-your-mouth texture, it tastes really good!

If you want to give the recipe a try, head over to Donna's blog!

That is how I made them.

So much easier than rolling them out.

Ciao ! I think the log is nice too !!

Jeannette said...

I almost did the same thing!! But then remembered the bag trick.

I honestly think these look much better than mine!! The chips stand out more and I bet they were a bit easier to slice.

Beautiful!

I made your nectarine cake with berries but changed it up a bit and it turned out great. This recipe is a must. I cant wait to try it. YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY!

I like the round shape, too. The log way is sometimes the easier way to go, I think. They look great.

Genius and cute! Grandma used to tell me it is only a mistake if you say so. Your shortbread cookies look delicious!

How come your biscuit didnt look dark and what did you add into your cookies as it looks like cranberries.

Hi all - Thanks for the comments!

Piggys @ 18/10/10 - I only had chocolate chips in the batter, no cranberries though. To be honest, I'm not sure why my cookies turned out lighter in colour too.
