This is exactly what I was looking for-- a classic shortbread recipe (1 part sugar, 2 parts butter, 3 parts flour). They turned out wonderful! I halved the recipe, but otherwise followed it exactly. I ended up with 3 dozen small cookies-- one batch plain, the other two with sprinkles. (Put the sprinkles on before baking so they stick!) I'm not sure what went wrong for the negative reviewers, but my cookies tasted great, even right out of the oven-- not at all crumbly or sand-like as some claimed. I don't have a cookie press, so I rolled the dough into 3 logs and froze for 30 min so I could slice 1/4" cookies (if you do this make sure to use a sharp cutting knife, a butter knife won't work). Bottom line: These were the perfect and simple shortbread cookies I wanted. Will definitely use again!
