These were really good...everyone that tried them enjoyed them...i think it needs more sugar, a little lemon extract & i probably should cut them thicker...& possibly undercooking it? that should make them exactly like Atlanta Bread Co. (ABC has THE best shortbread cookies!!) I made a half batch...measured ingredients by weight. 250g ap flour, 63g powdered sugar, 2 sticks of butter, 1/8 tsp. salt. I also used a hand mixer on low until it came together. Very easy to make! Thanks for posting!!:0)

Shortbread are my #1 favourite treat (yes, even beats chocolate). This recipe was gorgeous, delivering a wonderful biscuit/cookie with a buttery crunch, I made them today - will there be any left by tomorrow afternoon???. Made for ZWT8, The Fearless Red Dragons

These are so easy to make and come out light, crisp and buttery. Made 1 dozen since they do not contain chocolate I am sure DH won't be helping me eat these (which is fine with me!). I topped them with some sugar crystal sprinkles for a little extra sweet crunch. Made for ZWT8 Family Picks.

Very, very simple, yet produces a delicate, elegant tea cookie with buttery richness. I rolled the dough into two logs the diameter of a banana, refrigerated, sliced, and baked 14 minutes on an airform tray, then dusted with powdered sugar using a tea strainer. Perfect. Made for ZWT8.

My husband gave these 4 stars cause he said they needed to be a bit sweeter. However, I thought they were perfectly flavored with just the right amount of sweetness, so I'm giving them 5 stars. These were super fast to mix up and bake and mine were done after 15 minutes. Made for Count Dracula and his Hot Bites, ZWT 7.

I love shortbread cookies and have made many different versions. I mean butter, sugar, flour... you can't really go wrong! I like the added salt in this version. I baked mine for 15 minutes and I got the exact number specified, so you were right on! I do think shortbread cookies take a little finesse to turn out with that 'melt in your mouth' texture - just putting everything in the bowl and mixing didn't create that result this time. Even so, this would be a very good recipe for a beginning cook!
