      We tried this for some diabetic friends tonight. They said that it had more flavor than most diabetic sweets. We cut the down the butter to 6 tbs and didn't use the unblanched almonds. It appeared a little flaky but was really good.

      This shortbread is terrific. I think 8 Tablespoons of margarine is over the top, so I will decrease it next time. Other than that, this is a real keeper! Susan B

      I have not tried this YET but I will be. I was looking for a shortbread recipe just yesterday afternoon. Too bad I didn't see this one. The only changes I intend to make are leaving out the almond extract and possibly leaving the nuts off. But it sounds so close to the "real" shortbread that I can hardly wait to try this. THANK YOU!
