Mocha or Chocolate Shortbread
60 mins (prep 20, cooking 40)
9 ingredients
30-40 servings
The original recipe was for mocha shortbread (from a mini book called Elinor Klivans Cookies) As I was giving some to other people, I used chocolate instead as I thought it would be a safer bet. So I subsituted the instant coffee for good quality cocoa powder. As I was mixing it all by hand I dissolved the cocoa in hot water so it was easier to cream with the butter! The recipe is for shortbread fingers but I also made some xmas shapes. When the shapes came out they had lost the definition so I scraped off some edges with a serated knife to get a better shape. I doubled up the recipe but didn't need to double up the melted chocolate as it was plenty. I think I'll make these next year too!
