What You'll Need:

cups all-purpose flour
cup confectioners' sugar
- 2 teaspoons instant coffee granules
cup butter, softened
teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted (optional; see note)
What To Do:
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
In a large bowl, combine flour, confectioners' sugar, and coffee granules; add butter and vanilla. With an electric mixer on low speed, beat until blended. Stir in 1 cup chocolate chips.
Press dough into an ungreased 9-inch square pan; prick dough with a fork.
Bake 20 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cut into small squares while warm. Drizzle each square with melted chocolate, if desired.
Place 1/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips in a resealable plastic bag; microwave at HIGH 15 seconds or until soft. Knead bag until smooth. Snip a tiny hole in the corner of the bag, and drizzle chocolate over shortbread.
