Shortbread Recipe

Publisher Photo
I live in Missouri, but many of my "family tradition" recipes come from New Zealand. My parents moved there when I was 1, and that's when I grew up, so some have a "Down Under" heritage. These special-occasion cookies bring back warm memories of my childhood, and I'm going to make sure they're passed on to the next generation in my family...no matter where they live!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 19, 2012

Very easy to make, both wife and I have made this recipe twice. The second time around we added 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts. Cut roll into 3/8 slices. This should be a "FIVE STAR". Thanks from Hawaii!
