Not really shortbread
This wasn't really shortbread. The variation changed it too much. I will say that they were GREAT with a cup of coffee in all fairness. If you like coffee and want to try an interesting recipe, this is the one for you. It is very tasty. If you love shortbread and want a shortbread recipe, try something else.
Mocha Shortbread Cookies
This is a fabulous twist to an old favorite cookie. We are scottish and have an annual scottish themed holiday party each year and we always serve shortbread cookies, but this year there will be a companion cookie, mocha shortbread. This is the best of both worlds for the chocoholic, of which I am one. My friends will adore these as much as I do I have no doubt. As for the diet...as Scarlet O'Hara once said, "Tomorrow is another day!" - Camille
easy but good
My wife, who isn't a sweet eater, really liked this as not too sweet. My daughter who is a sweet eater liked it as well for the mocha taste.
Good with coffee
This is an average recipe ... worth making if you want something special to serve with coffee. When mixed, the dough looks like very fine crumbs so it needs to be firmly pressed into the baking pan. Not really a good example of what shortbread should taste like.
