    WaterMelon's Note:

    These have a wonderful texture - buttery, melt-in-your-mouth soft, yet a little crunchy. The cornstarch makes this shortbread especially tender, while the addition of oatmeal give it a bit of crunch. Using old-fashioned oats instead of quick-cooking will provide more crunch. Recipe by Elinor Klivans. These can be made ahead and frozen up to 3 months. Wrap them tightly with plastic wrap, then seal in a clean plastic/metal container.

      So delicious, the flavour is almost maple-like, and the texture is divine (cross between a shortbread and a cookie). I pressed into a 13X8X2 pan and this made them even crisper. I also used dark brown sugar and salted butter (omitting the salt). I will be making this again!

      Oooo! These were very good. I loved the crunchiness of the peices from the edge! The only thing I would do different is next time I will not add salt, but just use salted butter instead, as I think it was just a tad bit too salty, but all in all I thought they were great Watermelon! Thanks!
