Author Notes: If you love the taste of a buttery shortbread cookie these cookies take it up a notch with the taste of brown butter, almond and espresso. White chocolate and toasted almonds drizzled on the top add a sweet creaminess that melts in your mouth. It is simple to bake and the dough keeps well in the refrigerator for days. Watch what cookie cutter you use because these cookies do spread so keep up its thickness. Kevin Towle
