Top Review by KristineB

These shortbread cookies are awesome! I didn't have enough butter so I used 1/2 c butter and 1/2 c margarine, I think they turned out fine. I'm not a huge chocolate person, I think next time I will use dried cherries in place of the M&M's, and maybe almond extract instead of vanilla. This recipe is a definite keeper, thanks for posting it!
