Espresso-Chocolate Shortbread CookiesPosted: December 22, 2007 | |
One great thing about reading food blogs is that I get inspired to try recipes I would otherwise overlook. Deb of Smitten Kitchen posted about the Espresso-Chocolate Shortbread Cookies from Dorie Greenspan’s Baking: From My Home to Yours, and three days later I made them myself.
When perusing Dorie’s book, I never really looked at the shortbread recipes because I didn’t think I liked shortbread. Well, I was wrong. I love these shortbread cookies — they have an excellent coffee flavor and are surprisingly light in texture.
I can’t eat too many of these — they contain a fair amount of butter so I gave half the batch away — but even one of these cookies after dinner is such a treat! In case you couldn’t tell, I am a huge fan of Dorie. If you would like to try the recipe, you can find it in the Smitten Kitchen link I provided above.
