  • Roll dough into 1-inch balls; place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets. Flatten slightly with bottom of glass.

Easy Cleanup

Line the baking sheets with parchment before use. The baked cookies will slide right off and you won't have to wash the pans in between uses.

Bittersweet Shortbread Cookies

Prepare as directed, reducing the nuts to 1 cup and adding 1-1/2 pkg. (4 oz. each) BAKER'S Bittersweet Chocolate, coarsely chopped, to prepared dough along with the nuts.

    I made these for my husband when he mentioned that they were some of his favorite cookies (he doesn't usually care much for sweets). He LOVED them! I think he ate them all on his own.
