Here is the original recipe "non vegan recipe" from About.com
Here is my version:
- Vegan Chocolate chip shortbread bars
2-1/2 cups white flour
1/2 cup white sugar,
1 cup Earth Balance shortening, cold and cut into cubes
1 cup Dairy free chocolate chips, (I used 1/2 cup Enjoy life chocolate chips, 1/2 chopped Lindt Dark chocolate)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place flour and sugar in large bowl. Mix with wire whisk.
Add cut shortening. toss lightly with your hands or a fork to coat the cubes.
Use a pastry cutter, to blend shortening into flour/sugar mixture until crumbly.
Hand stir in the mini chocolate chips.
Dump mixed ingredients into 9x13 pan. Press firmly with fingers and level-out.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until lightly brown on top.
Remove from oven. Cool for 5 minutes then cut shortbread into squares, DO NOT REMOVE FROM PANCool completely before serving.
