If this doesn't taste like your grandma's, then your grandma must've been a lousy cook. This is amazingly buttery shortbread, and was easy to make. My only change would be to cook it a little longer (maybe 5-7 minutes), and cut it into bars with a pizza wheel before it sets. Mine turned out fantastic, and I commend the submitter for an outstanding recipe.

This is truly wonderful and easy! I have also added some almond flavoring, which was very good. I used a cookie scoop and made individual cookies, which I found to be easier to handle.
