Happy December! I know I’m a day late in wishing you that…I had every intention of posting these lil Chocolate Shortbread Cookies yesterday morning, but my TiVo was so full of great shows from being away for two weeks that I couldn’t stop watching TV Sunday night. And then promptly fell asleep at 9pm because of JetLag. So, cookies had to wait until today :)
