Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies

Who doesn’t like chocolate chip cookies, especially straight out of the oven, when the chocolate is still melty – mmm, a little piece of heaven!

Girl Scout cookie season is here. My favorite are samoas. How about you? Here are my “Samoa” Shortbread Cookies.

Shortbread, coconut, caramel and dark chocolate – what’s not to love?!

Shortbread with white chocolate pistachios and cranberries

Today is the day all the participants in the 2012 Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap post about their cookies. My recipe, this year, is Shortbread with white chocolate , pistachios and dried cranberries.
