Cookies four and five!

Double duty tonight!

Actually, I made the dough for these in advance, but they are refrigerator cookies, so they got baked off tonight. For these I used Martha Stewart’s basic recipe for shortbread. I like that it uses confectioner’s sugar, something about the little extra cornstarch and the finer sugar gives them a sandy texture to die for. It is a recipe I turn to every holiday, or whenever the urge for shortbread becomes overwhelming 🙂

Poppy Seed Shortbread

Its rectangular shape became a little irregular on baking, but I still think they look lovely.

Mocha Shortbread

These I actually baked like bar cookies in a pan, so they are more even, and the mocha flavoring is not too overpowering, so they are good kid cookies too.
