i have only one word for these cookies.....INCREDIBLE..I DID ROLL OUT THE DOUGH AND USE COOKIE CUTTERS..TURNED OUT GREAT...thanks so much for the great recipe..easy and tastes wonderful..



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.
