Chocolate Chip Shortbread

Apart from leftover egg whites, I had leftover nastar dough as well. Not because of inaccurate ratio of filling and dough, but because I am sort of perfectionist. I tried several different nastar recipe (duh!), and again, found it difficult to settle to one. Actually, there is still one recipe on the list that I haven't tried yet... probably later when someone asks me to bake nastar.

By nature nastar dough is a bit bland (though buttery), as not to overpower the sweet pineapple filling. I knew that the dough would not be sweet enough eaten on its own, but I was afraid of overworking it if I put more sugar into the dough. I decided to only mix in a handful (chopped) chocolate chips.

#celle qui veille: sorry, I forgot to put link on the 'click here for recipe'! It's the same dough used for another cookies, that's why I didn't rewrite it here :)

The link to the recipe is:

Please do add more icing sugar to the dough.. for the reason that I explained in the post :)
