This is a marvelous simple, customizable "shortbread" cookie recipe. Other reviewers mentioned it isn't "true shortbread", but it tastes close enough for me and my family! I don't have an electric mixer so I did it all by hand and fork, and it turned out great. I followed one suggestion to cream the butter by itself for a while, then I slowly added sifted sugar, then flour. My arm got tired near the end, but it was fine! I hate maraschinos so I ended up topping my cookies with all sorts of sprinkles. My favorite topping was jam-- I spooned a bit into little heart-shaped indentations-- and then green sprinkles over top, and they made attractive christmas shortbread cookies. Yum! I went back and made another batch the very next day. I'm definitely saving this recipe!
