"I love shortbread cookies and this is one of the best recipes I've found. Instead of cutting the cookies out, I rolled the dough into logs (I had five logs about an inch in diameter with a double bat..." See morech), covered them in Seran wrap and chilled them for a couple hours. Then I cut the dough into half-inch chunks (I got average of aboout a dozen to fifteen pieces from each log) and flattened them on a cookie sheet with the bottom of a glass covered in sugar. They turned out great! I also made up some of the Almond Butter Icing I found under the "Frostings and Icings" section -- the two together make a great combo!"
"Outstanding! This recipe is simple and classic. Instead of struggling with a wooden spoon, I just used my electric mixer to do it all. First I beat up the cold butter, sugar and extract, then added..." See more the sifted flour and put the mixture on "stir." Those who said it was crumbly didn't stir it long enough. I took other reviewers' advice and used only 2 cups of flour. Also, I rolled it into a 2.5 inch log, chilled, then sliced the cookies 1/2" thick. They baked in my convection oven for 20 mins and were perfect! Soft and delish. Enjoy!"
