These rich buttery cookies have just three ingredients! They're a snap to make for a last-minute gift or when guests will be arriving on short notice. For best results, gradually stir the flour into the dough. -Shirley Gardiner Clearwater, Manitoba

Thanks for having this shortbread recipie on line. It is the same one my mother and grandmother made. They were from Manitoba also. And it makes the best short

MY REVIEW

Pretty bland. For all the butter and brown sugar it should have more flavor, I think. Would not make it again. (This may be okay as a cookie to go with ice cream but I wouldn't waste the calories on them.

MY REVIEW

I just made these today, they taste great! I have made shortbread before only once, and I just LOVED the addition of the brown sugar. They are so simple yet so yummy! Instead of cutting into squares I used a 1 1/2 inch biscuit cutter which gave the cookies ridged edges. SO cute and yummy! Will definitely make again; thanks so much for sharing!
