Eggless Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies | Christmas Chocolate Cookies

 Chocolate chip shortbread cookies are a perfect snack with a cup of coffee or tea, can be sandwiched with cream and serve it as after school snack for the kiddos. These Chocolate cookies are slightly crisp and taste is just out of the world. They are very easy to make as well, Just roll the dough as a log, cut in to even slices, if the slices are reasonable thin as mine ( ¼ inches ) you will get perfect lightly crispy cookies. If they are thick like 1/3 inch then they are moist and so soft. This is one among the several cookies I made for cookie exchange event (refer below pic for the collection of cookies i made), among all this cookie is my personal favorite :-)
