Shortbread by its very nature is bland. Minimal ingredients..a very simple recipe. This is an EXCELLENT shortbread recipe. It was delicious and very easy to work with. I opted not to use the gold dust; instead, i rolled the cookies into small logs and dipped one end into chocolate and colored sprinkles. They were gorgeous on my christmas cookie trays and they were reallllly yummy, too!
Sorry, but these were really bland, there is very little flavor. They just seem like they're missing something. Maybe I the problem was with my expectations.
These are sturdy and pretty, but not really tasty.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
