Reviews for Shortbread
"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!"
"Yummy taste, but not shortbread like at all. More like a very crunchy vanilla cookie. And much harder to handle than shortbread - dough kept crumbling apart when I was trying to roll before chilling. They tasted good dipped in melted chocolate."
"This recipe is fantastic! I ended up making shortbread jam cookies with this recipe, and my mother who doesn't like overly sweet things said that this was the perfect recipe!"
