Holiday Cookies with a Kick: Chocolate Chipotle Shortbread Cookies

November 17, 2009

IMG_2087

I live in interesting (and fortunate) life as a Recipe Developer creating Christmas recipes in the heat of July and summery recipes and grilling during winter. I created this recipe last summer for a “REAL BUTTER” recipe project coming up with “regional” cookie ideas and recipes. I’m not from the west, but I thought a touch of chipotle mixed with chocolate in a shortbread-type cookie would rock. They did! My assistant, Alacia, has been a fan of chipotle ever since. You can’t go wrong with Chocolate Chipotle Shortbread Cookies. They are perfect for holidays or anytime of the year.

Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon everyday. It's always interesting to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their websites.
