I have been looking for the perfect shortbread recipe, and I think this might be it! I have never thought or heard of using brown sugar, but the results were perfect. I quartered the recipe (1 stick butter, 1/4 cup brown sugar & 1 cup flour) as I did not want to have too many cookies. I beat in my stand mixer rather than kneading and rolling out the dough. Then I scooped and rolled about 2 teaspoons of dough into a ball, pushed down with fingers and cris-crossed with a fork and baked about 20 minutes. This made a dozen nice sized cookies as good as any shortbread you can buy. Next I might make a whole batch and dividing and add some chopped crystallized ginger, lemon zest and/or chocolate chips!
