Cheap shortbread recipe. It lacked richness in flavor. The shortbreads were edible, looked presentable (look at my photos), but the taste was way to sugary and not very good. It was like eating a very sweet sand. The dough should have less flour because the 1 1/2" balls were almost falling apart when I tried to make the small holes for the jam to fit in.
Maybe very fine crumbled almonds or pecans in the dough could add for a better flavor? I am guessing: 1/2 cup of fine crumbled almonds + 1 cup of flour (instead of 2 cups of flour). Seriously, there shouldn't be more than 1 1/2 cup of flour in this recipe.
Also, 1/3 of white sugar should be enough.
