It's Chocolate. It's Shortbread. It's Christmas!

Stop What You're Doing and Make These!!!

Seriously.  I love all the traditional Christmas cookies.  But I'm telling you:  make chocolate shortbread and bring those elves to their knees!

These come from Chef Extraordinaire Bob Chambers.  You will never, I guarantee, eat another chocolate cookie without thinking about these chocolate shortbreads...
