These are very good. Simple and tasty, although not a "traditional" shortbread.
Curious , do you use salted or unsalted butter with this recipe?
I like the recipe because it's easy and really tasty. I started them at 20 minutes and they burnt so next time I'll start them at 15 minutes.
This recipe is so easy and absolutely delicious. Will make again and again. Great for the holiday season!
