Recipe – Chocolate chunk orange shortbread

This was one of the squares made for the wedding.  I promised to put the recipe for it on this site so here goes:

It is basically a shortbread to which chocolate chunks and orange zest ahs been added.  You could probably adapt this to any favorite shortbread recipe.

3/4 cup butter
1/2 cup icing sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/8 tsp salt
1 1/3 cups flour

1 tsp orange zest or orange peel
1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chunks or chips

Beat the butter till smooth, add the sugar and orange peel and beat till light and fluffy.  Add the vanilla and salt.
Stir in the flour and the chocolate chunks

Bake in an ungreased baking pan at 300 for about 30 to 40 minutes – till light golden brown.
