    Heidi Swanson's Note:

    This is from the 2005 Hallmark Christmas Cookie Book. The key to success with this thick shortbread is baking it slowly so that it doesn't brown.

      These shortbread cookies were sooo good. I halved the recipe. The only change I made was I added a bit of water to my dough because it just wasn't coming together. I also chilled my dough twice, after rolling and then after cutting. These came out perfect.
