I made these for my daughter's wedding dessert buffet. I even bought a pastry cutter to make sure that shortbread was good. I have to say that this recipe was only ok and did not really freeze well.

It would be great to be able to save these video links on our profile. I can share them on ChefKey but to have them in my Recipe Box here would be great too. I like the one egg yolk added to the crumble!
