New cookie Recipe.
So I found this recipe for fudge striped shortbread cookies... It seemed easy and I needed to work off some stress in the kitchen...
I had trouble getting the dough into a "log" shape. I figured this was ok. I wasn't interested in making them pretty, ok?
Golden brown at the edges. I let them cool on the sheets for a while, because they crumbled a bit when I tried to move one. About 30 minutes later they were cool enough to move to a rack.
They turned out kind of pretty after I melted some chocolate chips then used a ziploc bag to pipe the chocolate over them. Next time I will be smart enough to use a potholder to hold the ziploc bag while I squeeze the chocolate out. I have a burnt hand because I'm silly. They're... Ok. They're not brilliant, but they taste ok. I actually think I should have used a bit more salt, or used salted butter in the recipe instead of unsalted. They came out a bit bland. I'll have to get the opinion of my guys later this evening. And try not to think about them being made from 2 sticks of butter. Ugh! Now I'm off to work out.
