TWD: Espresso Chocolate Shortbread Cookies

You know it has been a very, very long time since I've had to say this but I didn't really like this week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe. Now I'm going to take some credit for it because I was out of confectioner's sugar so I used regular sugar and I'm sure that really changed the consistency. Also, my espresso powder is about 2 years old and I can't help but wonder if maybe the flavor was a little off. So I should probably try these again at some point because every other shortbread/sable recipe in Baking From My Home to Yours are delicious and have an amazing crumbly consistency. Thanks Donna of Life's Too Short Not to Eat Dessert First for choosing this week's recipe!

I didnt care for mine either and I think it was all my fault too! I think the ingredients shine thru so if the ingredients are not so good... you get a not so good cookie in the end.

Bummer you didn't care for them. I only made 1/2 recipe and glad I didn't make more cause we DID like them. But no espresso.
