Great recipe. I always add a dash of almond extract for a bit of extra flavor. But I've been making these for years.

Easy to make and it makes a larger amount.

Will try the confectioner sugar next time in place of the regular sugar. Thanks for the info. This is a keeper.

Been making for years. In my recipe I use 1 1/4 cups confectioners sugar in place of regular sugar.

These could not be any easier to make or delicious to eat. This was my first time making shortbreads and they could not have been any better. Best ones I've ever had!
