Traditional shortbread cookies are famous for their light texture and buttery flavor. We love those classic cookies so much we put a twist on the recipe and came up with the best shortbread chocolate chip cookies ever! These melt-in-your-mouth chocolate chip shortbread cookies are light and buttery, with the added texture of chocolate chips and oats. We love how easy this recipe is, no rolling or shaping required. Bake a large batch of these delicious cookies and drizzle the top with melted chocolate for your next holiday gathering or keep it simple and just freeze half for later. MORE+ LESS-

Expert Tips

  • Once the cookies are cool, double the fun and drizzle a little melted chocolate chips on the top of the cookies.
  • Switching up the baking chips is a simple way to give these cookies some variety. Try white chocolate chips or peanut butter chips for a flavorful twist.
  • Cookies that are consistent in size bake more evenly. Use a cookie scoop to keep your dough balls the same or if you don’t have one handy, an ice cream scoop will also work.
