TWD: Espresso Chocolate Shortbread Cookies...and then some.

Thanks Donna from Life's too short not to eat dessert first, for picking this coffee and chocolate packed cookie!

The smell of the shortbread itself is enough to make me want to eat the whole batch. But I didn't. I put them in the freezer. Out of sight means hopefully out of mind. (Sure...)

I made the Oatmeal Spice version as well. Cinnamon, cloves, ginger and freshly grated nutmeg.

Perfect to have on hand when someone drops by.

Perfect with a cup of coffee for an afternoon pick me up...or a morning pick me up...or just breakfast.

I used mini chocolate chips in the original version. Chilled my dough for a couple of days and baked them when I had a chance.


Don't forget to stop by here to see the other bakers' creations.

Thanks for stopping by.

I wish I had the same command of my dough that you appeared to have. I love the crisp sharp lines of your cookies. I'm so glad you liked this choice. Thanks for baking along with me this week.

I love shortbread, and bake it often. The oatmeal version sounds delicious. I've baked the espresso version - you just think you are hiding it in the freezer! Enjoy.
