Quick and easy! I doubled the vanilla andused caster sugar. They did brown up quite a bit, but perhaps my oven was a bit hot. I pulled them out before they burned. Not like a traditional shortbread but very delicious! Thanks!
These are wonderful! I loved everything about them. So easy to make and they just melt in your mouth. Thanks for sharing! Made for Gimme 5 tag.
I made these step by step, but in the end they came out very thin and crunchy. Any tips? Quite unsatisfied.
