This recipe should not be in the lactose free category when the first ingredient is butter.
These are very yummy. Followed the directions exactly. Wish I had a stand mixer, but was able to do it with a hand mixer. And I was doubtful at first about everything coming together, but it does. They def melt in your mouth. I'm going to be freezing the dough to give away to neighbors.
Definitely melt in your mouth! And super easy to make. Great when you're craving cookies and fast!
A great quick treat! Recipe is very simple and the end product melts in your mouth. I used a teaspoon to drop the cookies and got a fleet of these bite-sized melters. I baked two ways, one was dusting the dropped dough with granulated sugar and flattening down the cookie - this resulted in a more crispy cookie, which tasted fine, but I preferred the cookies straight from the dough drop - any irregularities on top baked to a golden brown which looked and tasted delicious. Perfect with a glass of milk.
As simple as it sounds. Tastes good fresh and cooled, and there is almost no way to mess up. Great recipe!
Leslie, these were the bomb. I loved them. They were more than worth the extra effort. These tasty little babies melted in your mouth. Leaving a lovely subtle butter flavor. Thanks so much for sharing a recipe that I will make again and again. These were my new favorites on our Christmas Cookie Trays this year.
updated: I made these for my grandbaby's 1st birthday. They were very well received, so well that I had to make another batch to go to the Cayman Islands, the little girl stated they were the best cookies that she has ever had...Kudos Baby Kato :)
I ask for a gluten free recipe, so I used gluten free flour did not work.
Excellent cookies that are easy for non-bakers like myself to make. The recipe is so simple, and I followed it exactly, using all organic ingredients. They are melt in your mouth. So delicate, but not falling apart. I made a batch plain, and my daughter made a batch with sprinkles. I am going to keep this recipe for sure and try to add lavender or other herbs/spices. There is so much I bet you can do with this recipe, but they are delicious on their own. They are not overly sweet which is good, and while there is a taste of flour as one other poster wrote, I think pretty much most of the true shortbread cookies I have eaten had that. They were not dry at all, so I think it is a matter of knowing what a shortbread cookie is supposed to taste/texture like.
Very good when you are needing a sweet treat and haven't made a trip to the grocery in a while because everyone always has those 3 ingredients on hand. Since I didn't want plain old shortbread cookies I substituted 1/4 cup of the flour for cocoa powder, added a dash of salt, and a few drops of vanilla extract. After the 10 min of beating I added chocolate chips then baked according to recipe. They turned out great. I don't like how crumbly they are only because I have 3 little boys who make messes with them but they were a big hit with them and was told to add this to my frequent dessert list!
