Kraft Kitchens Tips

Size Wise
Enjoy a serving of these powdery classic cookies for an occasional sweet treat.
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.
