Here is a great shortbread recipe that you can whip up in literally minutes!  At least the hands-on work is really quick – the baking is about 20-30 minutes.  I have not made too many shortbread recipes, but after making this one I want to keep making it!  If all shortbread recipes are this easy – it could almost substitute a chocolate chip cookie in my house…ok not quite substitute the chewy yummy chocolate cookies, but definitely be made more often than they have been.

Chocolate Chip Shortbread

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 cup powdered sugar

2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate morsels, divided

Combine first 2 ingredients in a medium bowl; add butter and vanilla, and beat at low speed with an electric mixer until blended.  Stir in 1 cup chocolate morsels.

Press dough into an ungreased 9-inch square pan (I used 8-inch pan so mine ended up a bit thicker than the original recipe and took 30 minutes to cook); prick dough with a fork.

Bake at 325° for 20 minutes (up to 30 minutes) or until lightly browned. Sprinkle remaining 1 cup morsels over top, and spread to cover (I let me shortbread cool and dipped one side in the chocolate). Cut shortbread into 25 (about 1 3/4-inch) squares; cut each square into 2 triangles. Let cool 30 minutes in pan before removing.
