I baked a small batch of these yummy and satisfying cookies over the weekend for my family and we enjoyed it together. I thought salted peanuts and chocolate would bring a little variation,  as my daughter always prefer her popcorns sweet and salty together,  halfway while I was dipping the cookies in a melted chocolate and sprinkling crushed Salted peanuts, my mind suddenly drifted into Valentine's Day and this gave me the idea to use some dried rose petals and pistachio also as toppings . These shortbread cookies are great as a gift too.
