TWD - Expresso Chocolate Shortbread Cookies


Just like a shot of expresso with a teaspoon of sugar, this post will be short and sweet.

This week's Tuesday with Dorie is hosted by Donna of Life's Too Short Not to Eat Dessert First. She chose Dorie's Expresso Chocolate Shortbread Cookies.

These cookies are easy to make and taste good; however, I am not a particular fan of shortbread, so they won't be appearing on my rotation list again any day soon.

Thanks to our host, Donna, who will have the recipe. To check out some more of these cookies, visit the
TWD blogroll.

They look wonderful! I love shortbread, although I think I like it plain better than with coffee in it.

Ooh! Shortbread in August. I love it. I always associate it with Christmas, but why only enjoy it once a year, right?

Nice job on the cookies! I wish I didn't like shortbread as much as I do. I like plain shortbread better than these, though.

I adore shortbread! I particularly like the idea of espresso shortbread - great with a morning coffee!
