About Turkish Chocolate Shortbread (Un Kurabiyesi):

Turkish shortbread is common across the world and it is really easy to prepare. You may garnish it with different toppings or sauces. I used chocolate sauce for its top, but fruit sauces or other toppings can be used as well. It preservers its freshness for long time. For example, these cookies can be consumed after a week or two weeks. I recommend these tiny cookies for cookie-lovers.
