These cookies tasted really good, very authentic, but I had a heck of the time with the dough. I would let it chill much, much longer if I ever make these again. Plus, I would recommend a well-floured rolling surface & pin. They were easy to mix together, but sticky and a pain to roll out. Made for PRMR Tag Game 1/9/09.
These really were as identical to the Girl Scout Shortbread Cookies as one can possibly achieve. So light and soft, just perfect with a steaming hot cup of coffee or tea. I will definitely make these cookies again. The recipe didn't specify if the baking pans should be buttered, so I lightly sprayed the surface with Pam. The cookies slid right off the pan without needing a spatula. So I think the pans would be OK if not greased or buttered. And the cookies didn't spread much during baking, so you could probably put more cookies on a baking sheet than you can with other cookie recipes.
