Wow, did I miss something or is this a joke? I followed this recipe exactly and ended up with a crumbly floury dough that did nothing when I tried to pat it into any kind of shape. I managed to get it into somewhat squarish shapes, more through pressing because cutting wasn't working... I baked them and ended up with hot crumbly floury lumps that I ended up throwing out along with the rest of the "dough."
I made these last evening after seeing the recipe in the BH&G 1998 Christmas Cookie magazine. They were easy to make and came out oh-so-cute. This is definitely a keeper cookie recipe.
I make these every christmas and they are so delicious! The dough is abit difficult to work with but the result is well worth the effort! I could eat a whole batch by myself! LOL Thanks for posting this!
These are a traditional Christmas cookie in our house. They are quick and easy to make, and have a delicious, true shortbread flavor.
What a fun little cookie. I love shortbread snd the size and colored sprinkles made these tasty and fun.
I've made this several times. I use a pizza cutter to cut the shortbread into the little squares. These look pretty mounded in a stemmed candy dish.
Delicious, dainty little buttery cookies. This is such an easy recipe and really does make 160 itty bitty cookies - I needed to use two cookie sheets to fit them all. I did use the red & green sprinkles and this made them beautiful as well. My daughter thought it was very nice to make cookies for the "elves" on Christmas instead of just for Santa. :)
