These: http://www.taste.com.au/recipes/21347/choc...hortbread+stars look good, the recipe is similar to what I use for normal shortbread but with the cocoa replacing some flour.

I am making cranberry and white chocolate shortbread soon so you can definitely add choc chips and nuts.

I would do:

250g Butter

1 cup icing sugar

2 Cups flour

1/2 cup cornflour

1/2 cup nuts or dried fruit

100g chocolate

And if you wanted to make the actual dough chocolate replace about 1/4 cup of flour with cocoa

Also shortbread made as normal then cut into stars, place 1/2 tsp of fruit mince between the stars, brush tops with milk and bake biggrin.gif
