Very yummy and quick, takes shortbread to a whole different level. We loved the flavor, I also added 1/4 tsp. of lemon extract to boost the flavor. Mine did not puff up or look as nice as the ones pictured, but tasted great despite the fact that they were a little crumbly.
Melt-in-your-mouth delicious! The nutrition facts listed are for 2 cookies, what about when you eat half the batch???
These are very tender and tasty - wonderful!
