Tina's Shortbread Chocolate Chip Cookies


These chocolate chip shortbread cookies are incredible — they're so rich and tasty! I can't tell you how many times I get asked for this recipe. Everyone loves it and it's easy to make. The cookies keep very well, and you can even make the dough ahead of time and freeze it. Defrost when ready to use and follow baking instructions. Great cookie for the holidays.
