Excellent shortbread ccokies!! But be prepared when making these, the recipe says it makes 2 dozen and that's WAY off unless you're using some super **huge** cookie press! I get at least 6 dozen cookies out of one batch every time I make them!

After making the dough instead of using a cookie press or dropping by balls, I rolled the dough into four logs, wrapped the logs in waxed paper, placed in the fridge to harden, and then sliced in about 1/2" slices. Perfect and delicious. Sometimes I make the dough up to 3 days ahead of time then slice and bake when I need them. After baked I sprinkle with powder sugar. Makes a beauiful presentation.
