Dont worry, you can easily use butter, margarine, or even shortening in this recipe without thinking and it would come out great just would take less or more time to depending upon the fat used 🙂

I baked three batches of this, and all finished within 48 hrs 🙁 Make sure you bake a good batch 😛 🙂

Shortbread Cookies is one of the most simplest and delicious cookies.. Christmas being around, I thought why not make these only? I like to keep my cookies in freezer for 5-10 mins before having a bite, that makes the chocolate freeze and the “Chocolate’s Snap with Crunchy Cookies feels awesome!” Lets have a look at the recipe 🙂
