    TwirlyGirl's Note:

    My ex M-I-L had this recipe scribbled on the flyleaf of one of her family cookbooks and no one knew what it was, one year we made it and it was her mom's infamous shortbread cookies. I thought I'd lost the recipe when I divorced, but I found it online (with food processor instructions no less!) and wanted to share. I like bigger cookies so I don't get as many out of the recipe, some friends can get 5 dozen out of theirs. Prep time includes chilling, and it can vary.

      A very nice little cookie, if not exciting. Satisfied my taste for cinnamon. My husband loves all types of shortbread, including these cookies. I didn't try to roll out the dough. Instead, after I mixed the dough, I made a log of it, wrapped it in plastic wrap and refrigerated it for several hours. Then I cut slices 1/8 inch thick and baked them.

      While these cookies were excellent and rec'd rave reviews from all the taste testers hanging around here (myself included), I now remember why I stopped making recipes where you had to roll out cookie dough and use cookie cutters. I think next time I will just roll the dough on parchment paper covered cookie sheets and cut into wedges. Me love cinnamon anything! :D

      I happened to make this recipe just based on convenience (I needed to do something with leftover egg yolks) and was amazed by how great these cookies were! They're like french toast in cookie form and my family couldn't stop raving about them! I made around three dozen and they were gone two days later!
