MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 5, 2012

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.
