These Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies magically have the texture of a classic shortbread cookie while remaining soft and moist. A sweet brown sugar, vanilla dough is marbled with semi-sweet chocolate chips for a sweet treat that is perfect as dessert or with a cup of coffee!
Day 3 of the annual 12 Days of Christmas Cookies!
Since I switched careers, the first thing people ask is “What’s it like to work in a professional kitchen?”
The long and short answer is “Hard.” Harder than multivariable differential equations; harder than running 10 miles after a leg day at the gym; harder than non-Euclidean geometry; and harder than forecasting the cash flow and balance sheet for a 5 billion dollar business and presenting it to the CEO.
Some days work is easy and intoxicatingly exhilarating, but other days it feels like the kitchen beat you up and left you on the curb to die.
Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies are for those days.
And, let’s be honest, all the days in between!
Imagine the best shortbread cookie that you’ve ever had. Now stuff that full of chocolate chips and brown sugar, and you have this cookie.
It is tender and the crumb is perfectly crumbly without being dry.
It’s so wonderfully buttery and soft that it melts in your mouth.
