Decadent Chocolate Shortbread Recipe

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup butter (you may need an extra spoonful – if the dough is too dry)

Combine all ingredients (you will need to get your hands in there) until well mixed and it forms a dough. On an un-greased cookie sheet, spread the dough out, and flatten as much as possible – use a rolling pin to make it nice and flat if needed, but you may have to flour it a little so it doesn’t stick to the dough. With your hands form the flattened dough so that it is somewhat square in shape. Prick the dough all over with a fork. Bake in preheated 325 degrees F oven for about 20 minutes. Allow to cool and cut into squares with a pizza cutter.
