Made this for Fall 09 PAC Premie Adoption. This is a very easy recipe to make, I had no problems patting it into the pan without having to refrigerate it. It is really delicious, with a light buttery flavor, not dry but really nice and moist. I macerated some raspberries and served them drizzled over the shortbread, which quickly absorbed the juices leaving a nice bit of berries sitting on top, also ate a piece plan. Either way this is a keeper recipe and I will be making it often.

I love an easy recipe that tastes great and this fits the bill. Buttery, melt in your mouth shortbread- Yum :) My mixture was extremely soft so in order to pat it into the pan without it sticking to my hands, I refrigerated it for about 7 minutes. That was just enough time to firm the dough enough to touch, but do work quickly. I let the shortbread cool for about 15 minutes before cutting to help keep it's shape. Thanks for sharing. Made for Fall PAC 2009.
