1/2cupunsalted butter, softened,

1/3cuppowdered sugar,

1cupall-purpose flour,

1 1/2cupsemi-sweet chocolate pieces,


1/2cuptoasted sliced almonds,


1Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

2In large bowl, beat butter and sugar at high speed with electric mixer until fluffy.

3Add flour; mix at low speed until blended.

4Divide dough into four balls; on each of two ungreased baking sheets, pat two balls into 4-inch rounds.

5Prick with fork.

6Score each lightly with knife into 6 wedges.

7Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until edges just begin to brown.

8While warm, cut wedges completely through; cool on wire racks.

9While shortbread cools, melt semi-sweet chocolate pieces with the shortening over low heat, stirring until melted.

10Place chocolate mixture in a pastry tube with a small tip, or make your own with a sealable sandwich bag, snipping one corner to create a hole just large enough for the melted chocolate to pour through.
