Finally...an awesome shortbread recipe! I'd about given up trying, I've been so disappointed with others I've tried, including "Martha's"...those were so bad I threw them out. This cookie lives up to it's name...tender, buttery, melt-in-your mouth delicious. I am a cookie diva...cookies are as essential to my existence as air!! I do English-style tea luncheons and everything I make must be top quality and a bit different from the norm; I had a store-bought Earl Grey shortbread cookie and have wanted to make my own; now I can! I used this recipe, using extra fine sugar (which I use for all the delicate cookies), adding Darjeeling tea leaves to the dough, along with Bergamot extract. I rolled them in small balls and flattened with the bottom of a glass dusted with powdered sugar to keep from sticking. Baked them on a parchment covered, air bake sheet for 16 min. (set but not browned). I frosted them with powdered sugar mixed with a little more extract and some water. They are outstanding!!
