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.
