I never had a shortbread cookie until I was an adult.  I guess my Mom never bought them and I never had a chance to enjoy one until I was at a European cafe.  Of course once I bit into the buttery biscuit I was in love.

The key to baking a shortbread cookie is to cook it at a low temperature to avoid browning.  Of course to make this sugar butter biscuit even better I added in a bit of chocolate.
