Holiday Shortbread Cookies
What's great about basic buttery shortbread cookies is how you can add flavors to them. Or just leave them as is.
Give these cookies festive flair. Add 3/4 cup chopped mix-ins, such as dried fruit, nuts, or bittersweet chocolate, along with the flour in step 1.
To make these chocolate, use 1/3 cup cocoa powder in place of 1/3 cup flour; add 6 ounces of finely chopped bittersweet chocolate to the dough.
