I usually never make shortbread. Shortbread cookies have never caught my interest because they’re usually quite plain and crumble easily. This recipe, however, is no ordinary shortbread cookie.
These cookies have chocolate AND espresso! That’s one heck of a combination, folks.
I love that these are squares rather than your normal circles. You could even get creative and use a cookie cutter to cut out particular shapes since these don’t spread at all after baking. Oh, the possibilities!
I used Baker’s Joy non-stick baking spray with flour in order to make sure these cookies glide off effortlessly from the sheet. It definitely did its job! There was no cookie scrap left behind.
This recipe comes adapted from from Use Real Butter.
