Top Review by Sarah

This is the same as a recipe from a magazine here in Australia, and it turned out fabulous. I did halve the recipe and they turned out fine by doing this. I used electric mixer instead of the food processor, and that worked well. I also rolled the dough out and used various Christmassy cookie cutters, and got about 30. This was my first time making shortbreads and this was nice and easy to follow. Thanks for a great recipe.
