For an easily packable snack, try these soft chewy shortbread cookies. To cut the sweetness of a sugar cookie, use chopped nuts in your batch. Caramelizing the pine nuts seals in their earthy taste and firms them up, making the top of this snack crunchy and salty. These flavorful nutty cookies, coated in a sugary glaze, are an excellent treat to take to the office Christmas party.
