    Very very good - I made 2 and 2/3 batch (because that's how many chips I had) and used all butter, 1 stick margarine. was nervous as I've not had a lot of luck with shortbread BUT this dough was awesome to work with. We ended up though creating 4 times the number of cookies called for - if we had made it according to the directions the cookie logs would have been way too big. The end result was thumb-sized cookies. Because there were so many more cookies I was worried we didn't have enough of the melted chocolate so instead of dipping, just put the melted chocolate in a bag, snipped the end and drizzled. Much faster, same taste. I'm actually glad we didn't dip - might have been too chocolatey. Also, next time might use just a bit fewer chips in the dough - there are a LOT. But overall, delicious, easy and will probably be one of my Christmas standards from now on.  -  18 Dec 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Made for Recipe Group. Loved how easy to make they are. I made all sorts of different shapes. They do spread a bit and had a few that touched when done. I didn't use all the chips in the batter and melted the chocolate and drizzled stripes over with a ziploc. Look very nice and will go on the holiday cookie tray!  -  08 Oct 2013  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    We followed the recipe exactly EXCEPT we made the cookies much smaller. We ended up with 96 thumb-sized logs that we then drizzled the chocolate over rather than dipping them (since we had so many more to cover, we wouldn't have had enough chocolate to dip them.) The dough was very easy to work with and drizzling the chocolate was so much faster than dipping. WAY YUMMY cookies! I will definitely make these again. although I might try lessening the amount of chocolate chips in the dough as there are a TON of chocolate chips and I love shortbread.  -  16 Dec 2012  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
