Chocolate Chip Shortbreads

There has been a serious lack of chocolate around here lately!!  I don't have any new chocolate recipes for you, but thought I could re-post a yummy one for you to try this weekend.  The "old" chocolate recipes do start to feel neglected after a while, you know.  :)

Chocolate Chip Shortbreads

1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 stick (1/2 cup) cold unsalted butter
1/3 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips

1. Heat oven to 325 degrees F. Have a baking sheet ready.

2. Mix flour and 1/4 cup granulated sugar in a medium bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender (or rub in with fingertips) until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in mini chips.

3. Gently press crumbs together to form a dough (heat from your hand will help this happen). Place on baking sheet; pat into an 8-in. disk. With a sharp knife, score into 16 wedges, cutting about halfway through dough. Prick wedges twice with a fork.

4. Bake 25 minutes, or until shortbread looks dry and golden at edges. Immediately cut through score lines. Cool 5 minutes on baking sheet before removing to a wire rack to cool completely. Can be stored airtight at room temperature up to 3 days.

Be very careful with these from beginning to end as they're very delicate and crumbly!  They have a nice mild flavor since the butter is unsalted - you could certainly add a dash of salt if you wanted.  And um, I'm making my own self drool looking at this pic - LOL!

Have you tried these before?  Are you going to make some this weekend?  More importantly - are you going to share??!!
