a very nice shortbread recipe. i did it the easy way and mixed the dry ingredients in the food processor and then processed it with the cold butter (chopped into slices) until thoroughly mixed and crumbly. then, in a bowl, added this mixture with the wet ingredients. i always roll the dough between two sheets of wax paper to desired thickness (i did 1/4 inch) and then loosen the paper on both sides before cutting out the cookies. This way, they transfer really easily to the cookie sheets. Thanks, Hanner!
These cookies are amazing!! very easy to make and extremely tasty! my family couldn't get enough of them. I would highly recommend them.
Made these for youth group night and everyone loved themm!!
I did these in my Cuisinart food processor and thought "what a horrible and dry mess"....I dumped these onto a big piece of wax paper and started "working it" a tad bit and it came together so I rolled it out and chilled. I cut out the entire thing, baked and was totally tickled when I baked the BEST "no spread and no weird shaped" Christmas cookies. They cut and baked perfect and I have them frozen for decorating in another week. This was an excellent recipe so if they seem dry to you or weird KEEP THE FAITH and keep going and you will be rewarded! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this recipe!!
I made these cookies along with gingerbread cookies and chocolate chip cookies. The shortbread cookies where a hit with my sons 5th grade class and everyone who came over for Christmas dinner. This will forever stay on my holiday menus.
Very good, everyone liked them. A bit surprising how much time it took to make and ice them! Made as hearts for valentine's day, left some plain and iced and iced/sprinkled others. I liked the iced ones best, but I have a bit of sweet tooth!
Delicious recipe...they tasted like Lorna Doone's! I'm an amateur so I wasn't sure if they were going to turn out well, but they were a hit! I even had a coworker say that it tasted like it was straight from a professional bakery!!
I stuck with the recipe but cut it in half (I didn't have enough butter). The only modification I made was that I used only vanilla extract instead of the rum and almond. Also, I didn't have a "pastry cutter" so I used a cheese grater instead and it worked perfectly! I just made simple round cookies, but they would've been the perfect cookie-cutter cookie because it completely held it's shape.
These cookies came out so good. The only thing I changed was that I added Hazelnut extract to them instead of the rum/almond. What a Hit these are.I rolled out a decent thickness and ended up with 5 1/2 dozen.
