I adopted this recipe and when I finally got around to making it I was very impressed! My roomates devoured these cookies and described them as a cross between short bread and sugar cookies. They have a very light taste but are a crispier cookies. A great treat!

These are really good cookies. They remind me much more of sugar cookies than shortbread however. I got closer to 6 dozen as I rolled the dough into about 1 inch balls before pressing with the fork. The brown sugar adds a bit more depth than your regular sugar cookie. A nice little change up from the ordinary.
