Reviews for Shortbread Meltaways
"Ultimate in yummy!!"
"This was a good little cookie. I made a half batch since 7 dozen cookies seemed like a lot. Used my cookie trigger scooper that measures 1.25" across & it gave me 2 dozen decent sized cookies. Didn't alter the baking time. Great texture. I'd never made cookies without eggs before & this was a real treat."
"We love these cookies. They melt in your mouth. They do fall apart easy but just make sure they are cooled on cookie sheet before you remove them"
"this shortbread cookie fell apart and was bland-I followed exact recipe but I would not make this again."
