Chocolate Shortbread Cookies

This recipe was sent from visitor, Linda Bussey who tells us,  “These cookies taste like a cookie and a cup of hot cocoa all in one.”


  • 1 pound  butter
  • 1 cup of powdered sugar
  • 3 cups of flour
  • 1/3 cup of cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon of corn starch


Pre-heat oven to 300°F.

Sift together flour, cocoa, corn starch and powdered sugar.

Cut in the butter.

It is a very heavy dough and I use my hands to blend. Knead on a floured surface several times.

Roll to desired thickness (shortbread should be thick) approx. 1/2 inch.

Cut with a small round cookie cutter or a juice glass.

Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes.

Cool completely and store in an airtight container.
