Question about your rye shortbread recipe

Hi Emily – Thank you for your rye shortbread recipe! I think it came out nicely; however I need to make another batch and I was thinking about putting some mini chocolate chips in there. What do you think of that idea? Or should I just grind up some toasted almonds? Thanks for your suggestions on how to do some variations on a theme.

Yes to mini chocolate chips! I love the flavors of rye flour + chocolate! I’ve done cocoa nibs in these shortbread too. Almonds or pistachios would be lovely, as well! Happy baking! : )

Thank you, Emily! I would venture to guess that chocolate chips and roughly ground up almonds would be “too much”? Thanks for your help!
