Wow! First of all, this recipe was a lifesaver because I was making the cookies for someone who loves shortbread and I tried a recipe from a different site that called for me to roll out the dough and cut it into shapes with disastrous results. So I tried these cookies and they couldn’t have been better! They taste like the fancy, store-bought authentic shortbread I’ve tried and the texture was right on—firm but crumbly. I added a bit less than a quarter cup extra sugar and threw in some toasted and chopped cashews at the end so they would be nutty shortbreads. I had to stop eating them so we would have enough to package and give away! They weren’t the easiest cookies to make (my hands were very tired after cutting in a pound of cold butter- perhaps next time I’ll use the grating disc on my food processor first?) but I was very happy with the results!
