Brown-Sugar Chocolate-Chunk Shortbread
The secret to this rich chocolate-chunk shortbread is a mix of sugars—brown for a caramel note, and confectioners' for a melt-in-your-mouth texture. To make this a gift that your recipients can bake for themselves on-demand, wrap the logs of dough tightly in freezer paper to keep it from drying out; then roll it in patterned waxed paper and secure the ends with twine. You can download the free, printable gift tags you see on the packaging here.
