Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

Do you show love through food? A whole generation of us were brought up that way. So when I saw this recipe for chocolate chip shortbread I just had to make them for an English friend and her daughter. They enjoy a good cup of tea and I thought this twist on an old English classic would be a great addition.

They taste better after sitting for a while and they are so easy to make.


  • 1 cup butter –  softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup  corn starch
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips: I have also used the white baking chips with delicious results.
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  1. Mix butter, brown sugar and vanilla thoroughly using an electric mixer.
  2. Sift flour and corn starch together. Gradually add to the butter mixture.
  3. Add chocolate chips.
  4. Form into 1-inch balls and place on ungreased baking sheets.
  5. Pour sugar on a small plate; dip bottom of drinking glass in sugar and gently press down on each cookie to flatten.
  6. Press center of each cookie with tip of a teaspoon (creating a small crescent-shaped indentation design).
  7. Bake in a preheated 300 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until bottoms begin to brown.
  8. Cool for 5 minutes; remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
