Espresso Shortbread Cookie by Dukes & Duchesses

I'm Randi from Dukes and Duchesses.  I love, love, love Christmas and I'm so happy to be guest posting here for Kelsey's Cookie Exchange!  What a great way to prepare for the holidays.  I'm pinning all kinds of ideas!
 
This is another recipe you'll want to pin: Espresso Shortbread.  It's one of my favorites.  Pair it with a cup of coffee after a heavy holiday meal and you have a winner!  It's not sweet {it's actually a bit salty} and it has a nice rich flavor.  My mouth waters just thinking about it.

... scoring, poking, and baking.  Sounds simple, right?

And you end up with this rich, buttery goodness.  Sometimes I dip them in a little melted chocolate just to fancy them up but they're delicious plain as well.
