Question regarding proportions in baking re: adding chocolate

OneJayneDoe | Aug 3, 2008 04:15 PM

I have an excellent oatmeal shortbread cookie recipe that I want to alter to make it a chocolate cookie. The recipe calls for 2 cups flour to 1 cup butter. I have no idea how much cocoa I should add to make it a chocolate shortbread cookie. I think that 3/4 cup will do it. I will be using dutch process cocoa.

Should I also add extra butter? Any ideas?

Thanks:)
