Chocolate Chip Shortbread
1 teaspoon vanilla
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy; mix in vanilla, and add flour and salt, then stir in chips. Divide dough in half. Press each half into an ungreased 8 inch round pan. Bake 12 minutes or until edges are golden. Score each shortbread with sharp knife into 8 even wedges, but do not cut all the way through.
- Leave in pans and cool on racks for 10 minutes. Invert onto racks and cool completely. Break into wedges.
This was only the second time that I made shortbread, and the first time that I used this recipe.
I am so happy that I found a really good recipe. And it was so easy to make! The two things I was most nervous about taking it out of the pan (it came out fine after a little prompting around the edges with a knife) and breaking it apart (being gentle on it, it worked just fine!) and they both turned out okay, so I am happy!
The pursuit of happiness is a most ridiculous phase; if you pursue happiness you will never find it.
