“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.
