Chocolate Shortbread

This is the second Bake Along Challenge which started last month...where a group og bloggers bake the same recipe that's emailed to them and link it to the host of the month's page...This month, Surabhi from My Cook Book chose Chocolate Shortbread....from Joy Of Baking.

This is a lovely chocolatey, quite rustic looking shortbread...and my husband took some to work this morning and his collegues truly enjoyed it...I liked it too but realized that I needed to make more glaze than what was given in the recipe and it was a bit crumbly...may be due to my oven (not sure)....I baked it for 20 mins....Overall, a good new bake...not time consuming...will definitely try again ;)

For the original recipe with video, go to Joy of Baking.com.

Only modification I made : I used brown castor sugar and slightly reduced the amount
I used salted pistachios and cashews for the topping... ;)
Linking this to Bake Along Challenge for the month of May hosted by Surabhi of My Cook Book and Family Friendly fridays, guest hosted my The Vegetarian Experience on behalf of Ren at Fabulicious Food.
