Easy, simple, delicious ... what more do you want for a holiday treat? My house smells wonderful right now, thanks to these cookies. They have a terrific taste, were stress-free to make, and the bar shape is a nice change from round cookies. I'll be making another batch tomorrow.

I substituted half of the butter with applesauce, which gave the shortbread a wonderfully delicate appley flavour. I also baked for an hour for some more 'crunch'. Overall, great recipe! This one's a sure keeper.

This was extremely easy and quick to make. It made the house smell lovely. My English fiance said it was perfect, even better than the shortbread he would normally buy from the store. It's authentic and tastes wonderful. Thank you!

Simple and tasty! I will be making these again! I excluded 1/4 cup of the flour, and sprinkled sugar on top. These are 5 star cookies, all the way. Thanks ;)

A yummy sandy-textured shortbread. I added a few sprikles of salt as I used unsalted butter to make these. The dough came together easily and was lovely to work with. before baking, I sprinkled the tops of the cookies with a bit of granulated sugar. I liked these better than the traditional white sugar shortbread cookies! A definite keeper!!

These are delicious, Nancy! I love the fact that you just cut them into bars! How easy is that? No more rolling dough into balls for me! These are so quick, easy, and wonderful! Thanks for a great recipe!
