Chocolate Shortbread
family recipe

These chocolate cookies come out of the oven a bit bitter. Perfect for dark chocolate lovers. Try not to overbake as bitter + burnt = nasty.


  • 1 1/4 c. butter (it is important to use butter and NOT margarine!)
  • 10 tbsp. icing sugar
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1/2 c. cocoa
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Beat the butter and sugar together. Add everything else and mix well. The dough will be really soft. Put it in a cookie press to shape the cookies or roll them and cut them (they look nicer from a cookie press, though).

Bake at 350oF for 20 minutes.
