"My best friend in high school's mom made this for me when I had my first overnight stay in a hospital. I loved it so much that I made it whenever I got the chance. When we lived overseas, my mom had to limit the number of times I could make it because butter was so expensive. Now it's part of my Christmas baking. Very rich and good!"

Very nice shortbread. Rich and buttery. I do question the instruction to mix the ingredients by hand. The probability, in my opinion, is that would lead to overworking it and making it tough.

This turned out very well, I added in a little bit of lemon extract by accident, so I evened it out with a bit of vanilla extract as well and i feel like it added a nice flavor flair to what is ...

This is the original! I think you absolutely should just mix by hand so you still get the little bits of butter. Much like pie dough in that you would never use a mixer for that either. So go...
