I do not bake cookies a lot.  Just about never is the more correct term !

But I am always up to baking a batch of these ever so easy, Shortbread Surprise Cookies.

Buttery Shortbread Surprise Cookies have a delicious whole nut chocolate center - pure cookie bliss and you will not be able to stop eating these cookies!

The first time, I made them, (in a smaller size) was as part of my son’s “Sweets Table” for his 20th birthday. He is totally into any sweets and desserts of all kinds and types.

Therefore on that day, I made a LOT of different sweet stuff. (if I remember correctly there were about 20 different sweet treats on the sweet platter/s !)

My hubby really fell for these – his only complaint ? They were too small ! After the first batch, I made them double the size, which he likes even more.

He has been working so hard on the kitchen renovations lately. And I thought I will make him a nice (and of course..if you know my stuff by now —EASY and QUICK) treat.

Naturally, I will let him think it took me half the morning 😉 !

The best part for me, because I am not keen on baking cookies is the easiness ! The dough is mixed within minutes, rolled into balls and then quickly stuff a piece of chocolate into each ball.
