Melt - In - Your - Mouth Shortbread
Good recipe, but took off one star because 375 is too hot, I used 350, also I had to add a bit more sugar than stated. The method I used was as follows: Let butter soften to room temperature, then I whipped it for exactly 10 minutes with a hand-held electric mixer (whew!). I previous to this had sifted the dry ingredients together, then added the dry mix to the whipped butter in three stages, mixing and whipping for a minute or so in between. The dough is very soft and a bit sticky so it took a bit of fiddling to spoon it out in to small blobs on the cookie sheets (I used parchment paper over shiny metal baking sheets). The size of the cookies I decided should be bit-sized, so no breaking. I used a tableware teaspoon to scoop. I then pressed the blobs down lightly with a fork dipped in dry icing sugar (to avoid fork sticking). I decorated each cookie before baking with 1/4 pieces of red or green cherries (ones you get in a little tub in the baking isle). Everything turned out very well, and its true you must time things exactly to avoid the edges burning. I let the cookies cool 5 minutes before gently moving them off the baking sheet. Definitely these are melt in the mouth, and delicate, and not overly sweet. Cookies have a dusty yet fluffy mouth feel. The extra piece of sweetness, eg the candied cherries , or a tiny blob of sweet jam makes these cookies perfect. Result tasted just like shortbread my gramma used to make (she also used cornstarch in her recipe).

Chicken Salad Wraps
Not too great using canned chicken. Use leftover roast chicken if you have some. (Canned chicken is too salty and has a gross texture in my opinion). Using leftover roast chicken, half ranch/half Miracle whip (both light) instead of the mayo, added some grated sharp cheddar cheese and it was perfect,more healthy and hubby loved it.
