Everyone Is Making These Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies

Published On February 6, 2018 | By Carrie Buchanan |

Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookies are the latest thing that has the internet all shook up.

When Alison Roman’s Dining In cookbook came out in October, she told Grub Street about these cookies—buttery, shortbread-like, rolled in crunchy Demerara sugar: “In the book, I only have one cookie recipe,” she said, “and it’s for these salted butter-chocolate-chunk shortbreads that are, in my opinion, way better than a chocolate chip cookie.”

The official recipe name is: Salted Butter and Chocolate Chunk Shortbread or Why Would I Make Another Chocolate Chip Cookie Ever Again? (smile)

Roman writes in Dining In that traditional chocolate chip cookies are “deeply flawed”—and that her recipe aims to solve all the things that bothered her about them. The salted butter has a “deeper saltiness than using just salt” and the shortbread dough has barely enough flour to hold everything together, while chocolate cut into chunks prevents “chip congregation.”

By December, Alison started noticing that more and more people were making the cookies. By now, she’s been tagged in over 200 photos, easy.
