Chocolate Chip Shortbread
Grocery List:
1 cup plus 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour

1⁄3 cup semisweet chocolate mini chips

how to make it:

2. Mix flour and 1⁄4 cup granulated sugar in a medium bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender (or rub butter in with fingertips) until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in mini chips.
3. Gently press crumbs together to form a dough (heat from your hands will help this happen). Place on baking sheet; pat into an 8-in. disk.
